The connection between sound therapy and addiction treatment

Sound therapy is an alternative treatment method that can be used during treatment for addiction, alcoholism, and mental health disorders. Addiction lives in the mind, the body and the spirit. Toxic energy and memory lives inside of the joints and muscles which can inhibit full recovery. Additionally, there is a lot of stress in the recovery process due to withdrawal, coping with harsh conditions, challenging emotions, and working through cravings.

When you are dealing with early recovery, most people experience anxiety, pain, discomfort, and fear. Sound therapy, specifically Innerdance – helps neutralise the brain, activating the autonomic nervous system and healing the body. The process has a profound effect on create a much-needed sense of relaxation.

Innerdance promotes feelings of spiritual well-being. This may be especially helpful for rehab clients who are interested in spirituality without ascribing to a particular faith. Many people find it beneficial to think of addiction recovery as the process of healing the mind, body, and spirit.

Improvements shown from July to November 2023:

These statistics we have been gathered through feedback forms:

This provides me with skills to overcome negative emotions. Being emotionally stable plays a big part in my recovery.


Innerdance helped me to listen and think what I am about to say.


It helps me in many ways especially with my anxiety. I found it made a difference by first evaluating a situation first and stop overthinking.


It made me realize that there is so much more out there in the world that we have to explore.


After the first Innerdance class I did, I started to paint. You see, I am an artist, but I have always been painting with a glass of wine. The picture in my head has always been art, wine and a cigarette. In the past, I wanted to paint and then I would often not know what to paint; so, I would take a glass of wine and then it would be easier for me to start.

So, what happened to me here, is that I have been sober for a very long time. I have had my acrylics and art supplies with me for several months now. They have been standing in my room (at the clinic)

Then – after the first Innerdance class, I was walking around and wanted to paint but was scared that I don’t know how to paint and scared that I can’t do it as I have never painted sober. I took out my art and I started to collage and then I started to paint. For me it’s a huge achievement as I always thought that I can’t do anything sober.
