How Does Equine Therapy Help with Drug Rehab?

What are some ways I can enhance my rehab experience that I might not be thinking of? If you’re thinking about drug rehab, then you know by now that it’s the best option for the millions of Americans who are struggling with drug addiction. But not all rehab is created equal. Some rehab offers benefits that other rehab can’t match. For example, not all drug rehab centers have the same facilities and therapy options that others do. To choose just one incredibly helpful and healing form of therapy (that most rehab centers don’t have), have you considered how equine therapy can help you in rehab? That’s right, therapy involving horses. It may surprise you, but it can mean the difference between addiction and recovery.

Equine Therapy—What Is It?

So what is equine therapy? This is a form of therapy that involves working with horses. You can learn to work with horses, as well as lead them and ride them. By working with horses, you can see your own progress and capability, as you learn to lead horses and work together with something larger than yourself. Though many people who are going through drug rehab face the temptation to deny their feelings, like the rage or despair that many feel, when you work with horses there’s no denying or hiding. Horses can sense what you’re going through, in an uncanny connection.

The Human-Nature Connection

And through that connection, you can learn to bring your emotions to the surface. Fear, anger, resentment, sadness, loneliness, joy and even peace can come out through your equine therapy. You’ll build trust not only with the horse, a part of nature larger than yourself, but you’ll also trust yourself more and develop a better sense of self and your own capability. And though people struggling with addiction often find themselves lonely or isolated, you aren’t alone when you’re working with a horse. Click here to learn more about equine therapy.
