Breakaway Addiction Services
Without music, life would B♭ (get it? Be flat…) that’s where you come in.
Music is a powerful tool that influences our mood and impacts the atmosphere around us. Breakaway Addiction Services uses music as a means to help set a welcoming tone in its lobby. Different kinds of music can garner a variety of feelings and contribute to creating a safe and inclusive space. The lobby music at Breakaway helps foster a friendly atmosphere for their members – until the phone rings. Currently, the music is connected through the service’s phone system. When a call to Breakaway Services comes in, it cuts out the song and completely disrupts the atmosphere.
Breakaway services is dedicated to providing accessible, barrier-free programs that all start with a warm welcome in the lobby. Whether you “like that old time rock and roll” or “the old town road,” music, in general, can help us feel better and set the tone of a room. Billy Joel once said: “music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.” Charities like Breakaway rarely have budget for items like a sound system. So they’re faced with a choice: they can either endure the incessant ringing or hope they have neighbours who are willing to step up to help. Your donation can help us create a comfortable safe haven for the Breakaway members who need our support.
How you can help
We’re asking for a contribution that will go towards giving the gift of two wireless speakers; $49.99 each so that the music continues for Breakaway clients – uninterrupted. Your generosity means the only time we’ll hear ringing is when we’re listening to the Lady Gaga and Beyoncé chart topper “Telephone.”
