Dr. Suprina Discusses Music Therapy to Help Beat Addiction


Dr. Suprina Discusses Music Therapy to Help Beat Addiction

Dr. Joffrey Suprina, dean of the College of Counseling, Psychology and Social Sciences at Argosy University was recently quoted in “Community Health” magazine. Dr. Suprina discussed ways in which music and music therapy could help a person to cope with an addiction.
