“We’re thrilled to be a part of the Summer Music Festival and dive into the state of New Jersey to provide further awareness options of effective and unique treatment,” says Chief Strategy Officer of Recovery Unplugged, Paul Pellinger

“The challenge with typical talk-based and so-called “12-Step” treatment program is that eventually patients have to leave and rely on relapse prevention protocols focused on health and legal warnings. When client departs Recovery Unplugged, they leave with the musical “recovery triggers” they themselves have created. The music making helps them learn to communicate emotionally. The process of utilizing music becomes a catalyst for an emotional connection to the soul where long lasting change occurs. When we work with addicts using all aspects of music, from the lyrics, the vibration, live performances, etc. … it breaks down defenses, motivates and facilitates the recovery process,” adds Pellinger.

In addition, the Recovery Unplugged program is designed to adapt to individual needs. Although addicts tend to have much in common, people’s fundamental differences can be overlooked in some treatment environments. Recovery Unplugged works to establish a better understanding of the individual and his or her needs for a full recovery. Clients engage in a full continuum of care including detox, residential treatment day/night treatment intensive outpatient programming including community housing and transitional living.

Many people working in addiction rehabilitation report that recovering from drug addiction often involves at least one relapse, and that many users will backslide multiple times. A frequently used and often misleading National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) statistic states, “40-60% of people addicted to substances recover and remain sober. However, there is no precise statistic that calculates an average relapse rate after addiction rehab program completion. Professionals do agree that most addicts will enter addiction treatment programs that use some form a “12 Step” program again and again without achieving long-term sobriety.
