While attending equine therapy, patients interact with the horses while enjoying the beautiful Arizona weather. Drugs and alcohol tend to isolate people, discouraging simple pleasures. A safe environment that encourages finding a peace of mind can help encourage a spark for life that drugs and alcohol rob from people.
Graduated patients have expressed how difficult it is to communicate to people when first getting sober, finding that they are easily irritated when trying to express themselves. Equine therapy helps in finding the ability to safely express oneself, and offering our patients this opportunity is just another way ABTRS’s treatment center raises the bar in quality of care for drug and alcohol treatment. Many patients have asked, ” Where can I find equine therapy near me?” Unfortunately, not all IOP programs or treatment centers have horse therapy available for their patients.
