‘Enemy,’ a New Album from Recovery Unplugged’s Richie Supa
Enemy has special meaning for me in that it’s a collection of music I use every week in my therapy sessions. Each song distills a bit of wisdom and experience meant to connect with the soul in ways nothing else can.
The release of Richie Supa’s new album Enemy will be celebrated at a reception at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, September 21st at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL. Supa is Director of Creative Recovery at Recovery Unplugged® Treatment Center in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and Enemy is a collection of the music he uses in his work there in helping addicts achieve long-lasting recovery from addiction.
A GRAMMY award-winning singer-songwriter, Supa has penned over 300 songs for artists including Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Ozzy Osborne, Mika, and Pink, and legends such as Willie Nelson, Johnny Winter, Levon Helm, Tom Jones, Air Supply, and Glen Campbell, among others. His work has been featured on multiple albums that have sold over 50 million copies.
The hallmark of the Recovery Unplugged® program is its effectiveness in helping addicts personally identify with music in order to explore and better understand the root causes of their addiction. Music plays a pivotal role in breaking down emotional and psychological barriers, becoming a catalyst for introspection and communication. This music then accompanies addicts in recovery after leaving rehab, and acts as a trigger to ward off relapse. After its first 32 months of operation, the number of Recovery Unplugged® patients still clean exceeded three times the national average for addicts who have completed rehab programs.
“Enemy has special meaning for me in that it’s a collection of music I use every week in my therapy sessions. Each song distills a bit of wisdom and experience meant to connect with the soul in ways nothing else can. This is my best expression yet of how music makes the difference in our program,” said Supa.
As reported in Music Connection magazine, Supa has helped thousands of addicts with his personal insight and inspiring music. As a recovering addict for the past 27 years, Supa’s philosophy is simple: “You can’t keep what you have unless you give it away.” So he keeps on giving.
