Review for ROCK TO RECOVERY, Laguna Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As an MFT working in treatment for addiction, I've had the great privilege of participating in Rock to Recovery sessions on a weekly basis at multiple facilities for the past 4 years. In all my therapeutic training I've yet to encounter a more effective and transformative treatment modality than Rock to Recovery. I've witnessed clients with crippling social anxiety step up to the mic, overcome their biggest fears and sing their hearts out. I've seen countless addicts enter the sessions carrying mountains of shame and leave feeling like they just played a sold out show at the Hollywood Bowl. Each week the clients are blown away at the fact that they can write, perform and record an original song in less than 90 minutes. It works wonders for self esteem in early recovery and most importantly it shows these guys that they can still have a lot of fun in sobriety. It's both healing and energizing; and for those more non verbal mental health clientele it opens up a doorway for emotional communication. R2R is all kinds of rad and lives up to every bit of the hype!
