Paul Pellinger continues to make the rounds and spread the Recovery Unplugged message of music-based healing and music assisted treatment. Our faithful CSO recently dropped by NBC Miami’s lifestyle and entertainment program Six in the Mix to let their audience know about the work we do at Recovery Unplugged and the numerous ways music can help enrich our health and quality of life.

Paul discusses his nearly 30-year tenure in the addiction care industry and his latest book Music Is Our Medicine, which was released last December and has already appeared on the Amazon Bestseller List. Music is Our Medicine tells the story of the Recovery Unplugged evolution and how Paul helped to develop our music-based treatment model based on his own findings and experiences.

Paul also discusses how Recovery Unplugged uses music as a catalyst to help patients engage and confront their emotions, and its strong association with memory and communication.

“I don’t remember what I had for breakfast but if you put a song on right now, it can literally take me back to the color of my room when I was 10. Music can help clients retain the necessary skill sets, perceptions and behaviors needed for long-term recovery.”
