Letters from Addiction Recovery Institutions

Dear Steven,

On behalf of the MusiCares Foundation, I want to thank you for the Drum Therapy Workshops that you have been facilitating with our clients who are recovering from chemical dependency and other addictive disorders.

Last August, I got to see firsthand the amazing effects that your workshop had on the residents of the Genesis Recovery House and was surprised when a few of our more guarded clients began to express themselves in ways that they could not verbalize in a traditional group setting.

As a foundation that believes in the tremendous power of music to heal, we salute your efforts to provide alternative interventions and coping strategies to people recovering from addiction.
