Animal-assisted healing can reduce pain and anxiety in people with a range of health problems, even more so with those in detox.
Animal therapy has gained fans in health care and beyond because research and positive experience supports it.
At Heartwood House we use various animals to help people recover from or better cope with health problems and addiction while giving love and kind care to animals who have been abused or abandoned. Our clients report gaining so much more from the animals than they give. Our clients respond better to treatment and healing if they choose to spend time with our animals and help them adjust to being safe and well cared for as rescue animals often have some of the same problems and fears as humans.
Each client will meet with our program director to be informed of all available aftercare options before discharge. These include, but are not limited to, residential treatment, sober living environments, intensive outpatient services, doctors/therapists specializing in addiction, sober coaching, sober companions, 12-step based, as well as other recovery meetings.
We are pleased to offer special rates to all first responders and anyone working in the healthcare industry. Contact us today to inquire about these specialized prices.
Transportation for admissions to Heartwood House available upon request.
