Sobriety Unplugged – The Impact

Main RIR Recovery Radio Partner Sponsorship

Sobriety Unplugged Created By Paul Stephen Wilson

Sobriety Unplugged – Paul Stephen Wilson

Sobriety Unplugged Created By Paul Stephen Wilson to shed a light on addiction recovery based songwriters.  Using this experience as a way to elicit and process emotions and have a whole lot of fun while doing it.

The desire to avoid experiencing and regulating intense emotions are major factors in substance abuse disorders (SUD) and relapse following treatment (Baker, Gleadhill, & Dingle, 2007). An important aspect of treatment is clients learning how to feel and tolerate their internal emotions without the use of substances. Music is an ideal way in which to evoke intense emotional states in people with SUD. This is a form of treatment that can help “individuals process strong emotional states in the absence of substance use”. (Baker, Gleadhill, & Dingle, 2007).

Substance use and music share an important commonality. They can alter consciousness (Aldridge & Fachner, 2010), provide direct and immediate instant gratification (Baker, Gleadhill, & Dingle, 2007) and produce feelings of “bliss and serenity” (Solanki, Zafar, & Rastogi, 2013).

The experience of music therapy can elicit both conscious and unconscious emotions (Inselmann, 2007) (Aldridge & Fachner, 2010) (Mössler, Assmus, Heldal, Fuchs, & Gold, 2012). Through the verbal processing of the musical experience, clients can now identify and put into words emotions they were previously unaware of or unable to express. Music can break through walls that restrict their capacity for recovery (Aldridge & Fachner, 2010) (Baker, Gleadhill, & Dingle, 2007) (Bonde & Wilgram, 2001) (McCaffrey, Edwards, & Fannon, 2011) (Sergio Castillo-Pérez, 2010) (Solanki, Zafar, & Rastogi, 2013) (de l’Etoile, 2002).

Sobriety UnpluggedMusic therapy has been proven to produce positive outcomes for clients ambivalent or resistant to treatment or have difficulty expressing feelings. Music has the ability to influence thinking and feeling which are prerequisites for behavioral change (de l’Etoile, 2002) (Mössler, Assmus, Heldal, Fuchs, & Gold, 2012). Research shows that the experience of listening to the music, lyrics, and processing what they experienced reduces feelings of shame, depression, anxiety, isolation and guilt. Clients can gain mutual identification, acquisition of a new coping skill, and enhanced optimism and hope from this experience. (Aldridge & Fachner, 2010) (Baker, Gleadhill, & Dingle, 2007) (Sergio Castillo-Pérez, 2010) (Silverman, 2011) (McCaffrey, Edwards, & Fannon, 2011).

Sobriety Unplugged Case studies prove the effectiveness of utilizing music as part of the treatment experience. Music is more than just entertainment; it is a proven, beneficial intervention in treatment. Music and the therapy process can create behavioral changes as well as the ability to process and identify emotions: (Bonde & Wilgram, 2001) (Aldridge & Fachner, 2010) (Baker, Gleadhill, & Dingle, 2007) (de l’Etoile, 2002) (Solanki, Zafar, & Rastogi, 2013) (Mössler, Assmus, Heldal, Fuchs, & Gold, 2012) (McCaffrey, Edwards, & Fannon, 2011).

All research shows that simply listening to music does not have the same effect; it is the live experience and the process after that creates the intense impact. Clients that have difficulties with appropriate social interaction at the verbal and non-verbal level, lack of motivation for communication, poor relationships, lack of ability in sharing experiences and poor sense of self, will benefit most from this type of therapy. (Bonde & Wilgram, 2001). (Aldridge & Fachner, 2010). In other words, this therapeutic experience will improve the outcome of treatment for the substance abuse population.

Professionals in the substance abuse field are always looking for ways to improve the therapeutic experience for their clients. Key components of achieving and maintaining recovery are: motivation, optimism, hope, and coping skills (learning how to deal with and express emotions in a healthy way). Many times, clients have a difficult time opening up, expressing, and processing their emotions. Due to having limited time with clients (often 30 days in treatment), clinicians must look for effective ways in bringing about this process as quickly as they can so they can help the client begin the process of healing. RIR does this in a way that will engage the client, capture their attention, entertain them and have such a profound impact on their life; they can carry it with them always.

The Story: Sobriety Unplugged Musicians walk in capturing the undivided attention of everyone in the room. After all, this is not just a speaker coming in; this is RIR musicians, guitarists and song writers. Clients are looking forward to hearing their story and will listen intently as our musicians share their personal struggle with substance abuse and their journey to recovery. RIR musicians share their experiences in a way that will make them laugh, contemplate and often times cry.

The Music: Sobriety Unplugged musicians and sometimes a special guest will then perform; singing and playing songs about active addiction and recovery. The lyrics and music combined produce a multitude of emotional reactions, surprising the clients as the experience brings to light emotions they have had a difficult time expressing or perhaps were unaware of.

The Therapy: Clients have come for this very special treat looking forward to the break in routine. They have had RIR musical contributors come to perform just for them. Every emotion they have experienced has been natural; unintentional. This is entertainment, not therapy right? Actually, though they are unaware, this experience with the RIR musical contributor has created an amazing opportunity for emotional growth, gaining coping skills, knowledge, hope and the opportunity to walk away from this experience one step closer to their new lives. Jack Kelly CAP, who is familiar with RIR and the experience will now help the clients process the emotions they felt and discovered, the hope and motivation they found, and show them how they can use all of this as a coping skill both now and in the future as a tool in their recovery. Using this experience as a way to elicit and process emotions with a clinician in a group setting also allows the facility to bill as a group session.

Sobriety Unplugged – The Impact: The experience of RIR can be the beginning of therapy for clients who have a difficult time expressing themselves, bring forth emotions and experiences clients were previously unaware they had, give hope, add motivation and provide a different outlet for clients to express themselves. Clients can learn to channel their emotions and even escape from reality for a few moments without having to use a drink or drug to do so.

Sobriety Unplugged Musicians stories, lyrics about substance use, their struggles, and recovery allow clients to process through music what many can’t through other means; creating that opening and breaking down that wall. Specifically to SUD, music and the therapy that follows provide the opportunity for the client to access feelings that are both integral to their addiction and pose obstacles in recovery.

Remember “Sobriety Unplugged”, visits schools, sober events, conferences, sober houses,addiction detox centers, drug and alcohol treatment centers all over the United States. Sobriety Unplugged along with select members of the come to share their message of hope, and play an unplugged set of songs geared towards recovery.

Darkest Before Dawn – Eric Clapton

Rockers In Recovery® – Media

John Hollis – RIR Co-Founder

By John Hollis, RIR Co-Founder – It was 2004 and I was stuck in a room drinking and drugging like a pig. I was using 24 hours a day 7 days a week. My state of mental health was off the chain to say the least. Deep down inside I was on a road to death and knew it and was really ok with it. It’s Always Darkest Before Dawn.

I was working in the Midwest and every night I would spend hours getting high, watching porn, and listening to music online. One night I was searching my favorite musical artist Eric Clapton. To my surprise up came a video of him talking about his recovery and how his life had changed. I was blown away, and started to listen to it over and over. This video of my musical hero gave me so much hope. I was near death and it took two more years to come into recovery. I always kept playing that video over and over in my head it gave me hope over the next two years in times of suicidal and morbid thinking.

eric-clapton-music-quotesTwo years after I got sober in 2006, Rockers in Recovery® was formed in 2008 by Lori Welch Sullivan and Myself. What began as a radio program to spread the message of recovery through news, interviews, and music has grown into a multifaceted media and production company.

In 2010, I was invited by Kim Martin, Program Director of Crossroads Centre Antigua to broadcast live from Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival. What an amazing day, the Rockers In Recovery® -Music Festivals vision was born that day. A way to carrying a message of  Addiction Education & Awareness and do it through Rock-N-Roll.

John Hollis Founder of Rockers In Recovery

2010 Crossroads Guitar Festival

On February 12, 2011 the vision came true, we did our first Education & Awareness music festival called love of recovery. We have gone on to produce twenty seven concerts, festivals, and drug and alcohol addiction community meet and greets across the United States. Rockers in Recovery® now attracts thousands to our music festivals and reaches millions more through our online media reach. The message Rockers in Recovery® is spreading through rock ‘n’ roll: there is hope, addiction recovery is possible.

I thank Eric Clapton for being open about his recovery and for being a power of example to me to this day. Unbeknownst to me, through the work of my Higher Power, that experience helped me to shift my thinking towards recovery, it would also become many visions to a movement that would change my life and many others.

Free Recovery Rock Festivals Help Educate About Addiction

Rockers In Recovery® – Media

2017 Recovery Rock FestBy; Christopher Hollis – Opioids were involved in 28,647 deaths in 2014 and opioid overdoses have quadrupled since 2000.

Significant increases in drug overdose death rates were seen in the Northeast, Midwest and South Census Regions. In 2014, the five states with the highest rates of death due to drug overdose were West Virginia, New Mexico, New Hampshire, Kentucky and Ohio. States with statistically significant increases in the rate from 2013 to 2014 included Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

It’s time to bring education and awareness to the current Opioid/Heroin Epidemic and Rockers In Recovery® has planned six events for 2017 to do just that. This epidemic is devastating the United States as a whole, with hundreds of deaths a day nationwide currently. Here are some of the community meet and greets and festivals scheduled so far;

6th Annual Free Community Addiction Educational Meet and Greet – 02/10/17 Pembroke Pines,Florida
6th Annual Fl. Love of Recovery Free Music Festival – 02/11/17 Pembroke Pines, Florida
1st Annual Pa. – Love of Recovery Free Music Festival 09/08/17 – 09/09/17 Wilkes-Barre,Pennsylvania

*Each Festival has an additional event the night before called the “Free Community Addiction Educational Meet and Greet.” 

EDUCATIONAL – It’s dedicated to provide the community with addiction prevention and education information to help families, community outreach leaders and anyone who suffers with drug addiction and alcoholism.

The thinking and actions around the RIR Meet & Greets are simple: educate and help people in need. The RIR teams up with addiction professionals known as recovery special event partners that are present at all of the Meet & Greets. The most important point is to provide answers to people seeking help.

“Recovery is a Process” and Rockers In Recovery® has amassed some epic speakers and some long term in recovery rockers on the topic. This is to help communities know that there is hope and they can find resources.

RIR is not a treatment center – Since it launched in 2008, Rockers in Recovery®, a for-profit media and production company, has attracted tens of thousands to its music festivals and reached millions more through its online reach. The message the organization is spreading through rock ‘n’ roll: there is hope, addiction recovery is possible.

Since the start of their music festivals in February of 2011, attendees can go right to the recovery information tent manned all day with addiction professionals to help everyone. Each RIR Festival has bands and solo acts along with a list of 10-minute addiction professional speakers in between bands. RIR is educating while having fun in a fun, loving environment. Festival goers also Enjoy Music, Recovery Speakers, Arts and Crafts Exhibitors , Food Vendors, Recovery Merchandise, Addiction Education, Evidenced Based Treatment Options , and Veteran P.T.S.D./Addiction education Information.

John Hollis, RIR Co- Founder

It’s Amazing, and they are so proud to see how since 2011 and twenty five of their own productions, the Rockers In Recovery® (RIR) concept of recovery concerts/festivals to carrying a message of Education & Awareness is working.

“This same message is now being duplicated by many in the addiction recovery advocacy movement groups like the October, 2015 Washington DC Unite to Face Addiction Rally (with Joe Walsh and other well know musicians) , the 2014 Fed Up Rally, and the 2016 SAMHSA’s National Prevention Week and Recovering Artists Worldwide(RAW – there is a charge for their events). It’s happening all over the United States. Since 2014 many treatment programs have even adopted as a modality in the form of RIR Unplugged, with some using the concept as primary treatment.  What an honor and we look forward to seeing many more use our unique form of addiction prevention and education”. Says John Hollis, RIR Co- Founder.

Quote by Tom Coderre, Senior White House Advisor to SAMHSA (Feb.14, 2015): – “Rockers In Recovery® brings the private treatment sector, addiction education, and the addiction advocacy non-profit sector together in a unique way as no one else is doing anywhere in the United States. What makes RIR unique: the message is all around and through the universal language of music with some great rockers of our day. They combine it with educational speakers and advocacy groups. RIR brings it all together at their community addiction education meet and greets, and addiction awareness and prevention concerts/festivals.”

Clearbrook Treatment Centers – “I would like to express our gratitude for the tremendous support and attention Rockers In Recovery has garnered for us. Combining Music with Recovery Media along with recovery music events was a remarkable vision and gift that Lori Sullivan and John Hollis Founders of Rockers In Recovery Radio & Productions has shared with us. The passion and dedication of Lori and John’s organization is inspiring! John and the team touch millions of people in recovery every day with their song of hope. Thank you Lori and John  for all you do for us and everyone battling this disease!” – Clearbrook Treatment Centers of Pennsylvania – CEO, Dr. Nick Colangelo

They do free community education concerts through Rock-N-Roll all over the United States. Some are just to name a few, the D&R Theater Aberdeen Washington, to a standing room only crowd with the same results at the luxury hotel in the heart of Las Vegas, known as the Bellagio. RIR was Rockin’ the 2014 RecoveryWalks at Penns Landing, Philadelphia, Pa. in front of 23,000 people, along with the 4th Annual RIR Music Festival in Feb 2015. RIR also donated the RIR Band & production services to the Hope All Day Festival in New Jersey 2015. This was to help raise funds for the Hope All Day Foundation.

14102691_10211086995637623_5925307549568595138_nRIR just came off the road from their Stop Overdose – Opioid/Heroin Education and Awareness meet and greet & “Maine Love Of Recovery Music Festival” which was held at Clark’s Cove Farm in Walpole, ME. On August 26 & 27, 2016 both events were Free to all.

The Special Guest Speakers were Sara Gideon (Freeport), Maine Assistant House Majority Leader and Dr. Kimberly Johnson (Washington, DC), Director of the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment at SAMHSA.

Now, decades into recovery from hard-core drug and alcohol addictions, a handful of members from some of the hottest rock bands of the 1970s and ’80s are joining forces to prove to musicians and music lovers alike a greater truth: Life after sobriety can still be a rocking good time.
