Abstract

States that by integrating current theories of drug and alcohol addiction, psychotherapeutic perspectives, and the thoughts of contemporary music therapists, a study explores ways in which the problem of drug and alcohol addiction can be viewed and addressed from a music therapy perspective. Discusses clinical case examples, which illustrate the different ways in which music can facilitate a therapeutic process. Includes references.
