Equine Therapy Is An Ideal Holistic Treatment

There are many different types of holistic treatment used for people who have mental, physical or emotional issues. Equine therapy is a type of holistic treatment that is being used to treat people who have substance abuse problems. When the person is resistant to getting therapy, or who cannot stick with the treatment program, equine therapy has been shown to build trust, confidence, self-acceptance and other positive benefits.

People become more receptive to traditional substance abuse rehabilitation methods while working with the horses. With 231,000 people in Pennsylvania using illicit drugs yet not getting the needed treatment, equine therapy has become a viable option for them.

Equine therapy consists of people working alongside horses. They may groom the horses, clean the stables, lead the horses on a halter, saddle the horses and learn basic riding skills. The type of therapy methods will be based on the treatment center and the programs they offer to patients.

Why Holistic Treatment Like Equine Therapy Is Ideal For Dual-Diagnosis Patients

About 4.05 percent of people in Pennsylvania suffer from a serious mental illness. Yet many people do not receive adequate treatment because they have a substance abuse problem that could be covering up the mental health problem. Holistic treatment combined with traditional drug rehabilitation methods has been used to treat people who have co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems so people can receive overall healing of the mind, body, and spirit. Equine therapy has allowed people to gain life skills, such as socialization and communication, that allows them to become active members of society.
