The New Standard For Recovery

Equine Therapy Program

Home | Equine Therapy Program

St. Gregory Recovery Center is proud to offer an equine therapy program. Equine therapy reduces anxiety and depression through physiological changes. Studies show that animal-assisted therapy reduces the stress hormone cortisol. In addition, spending time with animals lowers blood pressure and it increases the release of oxytocin, a natural chemical that promotes feelings of positivity and connection.

Because horses are very sensitive and mirror human emotions, an equine program requires participants to calm themselves during their interactions with the horses; and the horses themselves help clients find this calm. Equine therapy is also valuable in that participants tend to project their feelings and experiences onto the horses, which helps them talk about their struggles more easily.

St. Gregory Recovery Center is fully accredited and partners with the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers. Contact us today to get started.
