Equine Therapy

Equine therapy is an emerging form of therapy that uses horses to help those with substance abuse and mental health issues. This therapy can provide individuals with a sense of therapeutic connection by involving physical and emotional interactions with horses. Equine therapy is also beneficial in helping people become aware of their feelings and behaviors and fostering improved confidence and self-esteem. Additionally, equine therapy encourages personal responsibility and accountability, which are important components of the recovery process. Ultimately, equine therapy can be a valuable part of drug and alcohol addiction treatment that supports addiction recovery by providing a unique way to foster emotional growth.
