Muse Hosts Its First Talent Show
Muse recently hosted our first ever talent show and we are proud to announce that it was an unabashed success. On Saturday May 9, 2015 dozens of residents, clients, community members, and alumni showed off their unique talent to a group of over 45 audience members. As the performers and attendees alike munched down on an assortment of snacks and beverages, the evening was dominated by an abundance of talents, from comedy acts to musical numbers. Thanks to the alumni event organizers and the tremendous talents within Muse, the night was filled with laughter and song, and our clients got a chance to have some community fun in recovery.
Of course, this event was more than just a exciting evening for the clients of Muse, it also incorporated an integral part of our treatment process. Through the course of addiction, there are many things that are lost to addicts: self-expression, humor, artistic endeavors. Yet it shouldn’t surprise anyone to know that addicts are some of the most naturally creative people on earth. Through the process of recovery, our clients rediscover the creative individual that they had previously lost contact with. Singing, telling jokes, or even performing some hidden talent in front of people can help a newly-sober addict realize that they have a vital role to play in their community.
We know that even though this was Muse’s first talent show, it surely will not be the last. Stay tuned for updates on our next exciting event!
