Singer/songwriter and piano player John McAndrew takes us on a musical and spiritual journey from self-centeredness to humility, using stories and songs. This journey is a long and difficult one in recovery. Recent studies show that music can reach the parts of the brain that are linked to addiction and can function as an integral part of recovery. This experiential session demonstrates how music and music therapy can be applied in a variety of treatment settings to bring about therapeutic change.
John McAndrew, LADAC, is a recording artist, recovery music specialist therapist, licensed alcohol and drug abuse counselor (LADAC), and the Music Services Coordinator at Cumberland Heights in Nashville, TN. McAndrew’s music has been heard around the world and at many national events. While touring, he has performed for and worked with recovery audiences for over 30 years. His CD, “Forgiven” was in Grammy consideration three times in the Roots Gospel Category. His music is in several feature films including One Little Red Wagon directed by David Anspaugh. McAndrew currently works as a recovery music specialist therapist and is the Music Services Coordinator at Cumberland Heights in Nashville, TN, where he provides individual and group therapy. McAndrew helped develop the Music Professionals Program at Cumberland Heights.
