Music in Addiction Recovery | Alcohol Rehab Charlotte NC

According to pbinstitute.com, "Listening to music in recovery can be an incredibly powerful experience. Without even realizing it, we often attach certain songs or types of music with our experiences, recording those subconscious associations in our memory until such a time that something recalls one of those memories. In fact, our senses of hearing and scent are the most atavistic of our five senses, meaning that certain sounds and smells are the most effective types of stimulation that can inspire us to recall particular experiences and memories. Another way of putting it would be to say that sounds and smells are most easily attached to memory, even more so than taste, sight, and our sense of touch. Music is especially stimulating as it tends to be memorable by nature. An individual can hear a hear a catchy song and still remember the melody decades later, which reinforces the idea that music can have a major effect on one’s cognition, which refers to thoughts, moods, emotions, attitudes, and so on."
