A classic rock song. A smooth jazz tune. The new country hit that’s getting lots of air time. We tend to take music for granted. But if you stop and think about it, you realize music can definitely have an effect on your mood and your mindset. That’s the theory behind music therapy: that music can both impact our state of mind and be a way to communicate our feelings to others. At our Sacramento drug treatment center, we recognize the importance of music in the lives of people we work with.
