To those who haven’t experienced life-altering mental health concerns, overcoming them can be perceived as aequine therapy simple step-by-step program that anyone can complete. However, the reality is that each of us has our own individual story, background, and preferences; what works for one person may not be effective for someone else. Looking at all the obstacles standing in the way of getting treatment, whether it is a family who doesn’t take the time to understand, or mental health diagnoses compounding symptoms, it can feel overwhelming.

However, with help and insight, each of us can find a path forward, even when it is one of recovery from a challenging set of circumstances. Viewpoint Dual Recovery in Arizona is proud to offer support through various therapies and a compassionate and knowledgeable team. If you or a loved one is ready to find help for substance use or mental health symptoms, don’t hesitate to reach out today online or call us at 855.746.3633.

What Is Equine Therapy?

When seeking treatment, there are many types of therapy offered at various addiction treatment programs. It can be a learning curve in itself to just learn what these different types of therapy can offer and whether they would be right for you. Equine therapy involves therapeutic horseback riding and caring for horses, which draws upon the same resources and concepts inherent to animal-assisted therapy. Equine therapy is just one of the many options supported by Viewpoint Dual Recovery, and it can provide the following:

  • An alternative activity to take people out of their comfort zones in order to care for an animal
  • Practical setting to hone skills such as communication, focus, and forming healthy boundaries
  • Opportunities to practice teamwork and group responsibility, which can boost self-confidence and reduce anxiety
  • Beneficial connection to resources that can provide stronger healing in those who have been dually diagnosed with conditions like PTSD, depression, eating disorders, or other mental health concerns
