Mental health treatment and recovery, including addiction treatment, should include a multitude of approaches. Traditional therapies like cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy, pharmacological therapies, and many others have been shown to have promising results.

But, when accompanied by so-called non-traditional methods like music therapy, recreational activities, mindfulness practices, and others, the results can be miraculous.

Using HealthRhythms in mental health and addiction treatment 

Recreational music-making, including HealthRhythms Group Empowerment Drumming, is more than just playing drums. Karl T. Bruhn, Father of the Music-Making and Wellness Movement says, "Recreational Music Making (RMM) encompasses enjoyable, accessible and fulfilling group music-based activities that unite people of all ages regardless of their challenges, backgrounds, ethnicity, ability or prior experience.

From exercise, nurturing, social support, bonding and spirituality, to intellectual stimulation, heightened understanding and enhanced capacity to cope with life's challenges, the benefits of Recreational Music-Making extend far beyond music. Recreational Music-Making ultimately affords unparalleled creative expression that unites our bodies, minds and spirits."

Remo Belli, Founder of Remo, Inc.

"It's time to stop thinking of the drum as just a musical instrument. Start thinking of it as a unifying tool for every family, a wellness tool for every retiree and an educational tool for every classroom."
