Therapeutic Corner – Detoxification Clinics

Therapeutic Corner

Coppola’s CornerA very important step in recovery that is often overlooked by people (sometimes even the individual addicted to drugs and/or alcohol) is detox. This is the first step and the most important because if it’s not done, or not done properly, the continued steps toward recovery will never happen.

Unfortunately many people (even people in recovery) don’t understand the importance of detoxing comfortably in a safe environment. Some people will say that the addict/alcoholic should go “cold turkey” and “tough it out”. Though the idea of the addict/alcoholic suffering may sound good to some people, especially those who’ve been hurt by the individual’s addiction, and it would even be logical to assume that the more “pain” a person suffers through their detox the less likely they will be to use again, it is unwise and often medically risky to go “cold turkey” or “tough it out”.

Bands like Yes, The Who, Deep Purple, and many others have credited Vanilla Fudge with having a profound effect on their music, and the overall musical renaissance of the late ’60s. The band’s influence is still felt even today.

Christine Ohlman – The Beehive Queen will be performing at this years 2012 Rockers In Recovery Music Festival.

This queen of blue-eyed rock n’ soul, who grew up loving equally the sweetness of a Memphis horn line and the raunch of an electric guitar riff, whether played by Muddy Waters, Keith Richards, or Pop Staples, teased her blonde hair into a beehive in honor of Ronnie Spector and never looked back, picking up a guitar and forging a career as a songwriter in the process.

She’s the current, long-time vocalist with the Saturday Night Live Band, whose latest CD, 2010’s The Deep End, was honored on five national Top Ten lists and features special guests/duet partners Ian Hunter, Dion DiMucci, and Marshall Crenshaw, plus Levon Helm, GE Smith, Andy York, Eric “Roscoe” Ambel, Catherine Russell, Big Al Anderson, and others.


Ohlman’s legendary voice and stage presence were featured on SNL’s 25th Anniversary telecast; Bob Dylan’s 30th Anniversary bash at The Garden (with George Harrison, Chrissie Hynde, and others) the 2009 Obama Inaugural Gala in Washington, D.C.; The Lincoln Center “American Songbook” series with Sting, Lou Reed and Van Dyke Parks; and the Central Park Summerstage Tribute To Janis Joplin (where she fronted both Big Brother & The Holding Company and the Kozmic Blues Band).
