A new rehab center is helping patients recover from addiction with the power of music.

At "Recovery Unplugged" in Austin, Texas, traditional recovery approaches are combined with music.

Some patients say music is the distraction they need in order to get clean.
You don't have to be a musician to go to the rehab center, only have a desire to recover.

"So many of us, I feel, have so many things inside of us we want to say, and we're like, I don't know how to share it right now, let me let Eminem do it for me," said David Mariano of “Recovery Unplugged”.

"I'm sober, I'm clear-headed, I'm just more focused, more involved, just on this natural energy that's just natural and I love it," patient Bruce Diosdado.
