dc.description.abstractI am proposing a music therapy program for Mountainside Addiction Treatment Center (Mountainside), at their main campus by the foothills of the Berkshire mountain range in Canaan, Connecticut. The purpose of this paper is to educate and impart knowledge of music therapy, including potential benefits, how it can be applied to addiction treatment, and why a music therapy program should be integrated into the continuous supportive care of clients at Mountainside. Addiction is a life-changing disease that can have a significant impact on all aspects of a person’s health, including their physical, social, and emotional well-being. Music therapy is an effective form of supportive care for affected individuals throughout the treatment process, and can improve overall wellness and quality of life. This paper reviews some of the common wants and needs of this population, and how music therapy serves as a means for support and a medium for change.en_US
