Drumming and Communication

We are introducing drumming therapy to the complementary therapy programme at Smarmore Castle as soon as possible. Drumming groups have been used at other addiction treatmetnt centres for many years and are a popular part of any complementary therapy and activity programme.

Communication aids recovery - drumming aids communication

Drumming helps the mind focus and meditate, it releases blocked emotions and relieves stress. People begin to communicate, listen to one another and work as a team, and this aids group therapy and involvement within the wider therapeutic community.
