The Cumberland Heights addiction treatment facility in Nashville, Tenn., has announced the hiring of recording artist and longtime 12-Step recovery professional John McAndrew, who will develop music-assisted therapy and community relations activities for the treatment center. McAndrew's past experience includes positions at the Betty Ford Center and at WestBridge, where he most recently served as music and spirituality coordinator.
“John is in tune with our belief that spirituality and working the 12 Steps are the foundation for lifelong recovery,” Cumberland Heights interim CEO Jay Crosson said in a March 20 news release. “His unique creative ability to use music to help patients tell their stories and reconnect spiritually is transformational.”
McAndrew records with WBA Records in Nashville, and his current release “Forgiven” reflects experiences along his own spiritual journey.
