RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) — It turns out that music may be the best medicine for people who are stressed.

Doctors at Chippenham Hospital in Richmond are using songs as a part of their recovery program for patients with behavioral health problems.

They say the music helps them focus, manage their daily stresses and helps improve their overall mood.

Doctors hope the music therapy will eventually help reduce symptoms and get rid of the addictions many of the patients have.
