When it comes to non-traditional forms of addiction treatments, equine assisted therapy can be quite an effective solution. This extremely beneficial therapy includes a series of specially designed activities with horses. In this way, you can significantly improve the quality of your verbal and non-verbal communication, including creative thinking, leadership skills, self-confidence, problem-solving, and trust. In order to maximize the positive effects of equine-assisted therapy, you can combine it with the Ropes Course, Spiritual Counseling, and/or Psychotherapy. Once you successfully go through your equine treatment, you can expect to achieve exceptional spiritual, psychological, and emotional growth.
It’s a well-known fact that animals have an amazing ability to positively influence our emotions. Horses are magnificent animals that can successfully trigger positive emotional responses in order to overcome traumatic and problematic events associated with addiction. This is the reason why we have included it as a part of our addiction treatment program.
Addiction Recovery and Animals
The unique experience of being able to bond with a horse in a special way offers numerous advantages. As soon as you establish the first contact, you will reduce stress and let your guard down. The science has proven that we can significantly lower our blood pressure and heart rates when around animals.
Equine-assisted psychotherapy is one of many holistic, cutting-edge, and non-traditional addiction treatments, we use in our luxury rehab center.
