Ensuring that a nationwide support network exists for music people who are walking the difficult path to recovery is just one of the ways that MusiCares works to support musicians, performers, and music technicians in times of need.
"I'm sober today, because MusiCares cared enough to help me and for this, I am eternally grateful," says one guitarist who's been in the business for more than 25 years, and maintained his sobriety with support from MusiCares. "Thank you for helping this alcoholic break free from the prison of the disease of addiction."
MusiCares provides musicians with access to a variety of addiction recovery programs and services year-round. Among them, Safe Harbor Room support is offered at music conferences and festivals around the U.S. each year, providing safe spaces and daily 12-step recovery support meetings for touring artists who are striving to maintain their sobriety without compromising their working livelihood.
