Equine Assisted Addiction Recovery Programs

Touchstone Ranch Recovery Center provides a unique treatment experience for those who want to end their addiction and begin the path to recovery.Through the daily process of living on the ranch, their interactions with horses and the other animals, residents learn about trust, boundaries, communication and responsibility.(See Equine Therapy) Taught by certified equine therapists, residents will be able to identify what they learn from the animals and how to apply these principles to their daily lives.

Residential Equine Assisted Therapy Programs

Residents develop an individualized plan of care with their counselor. By focusing primarily on the spiritual interpretation of the first three steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, residents lay a foundation that enables them to continue to work the 12 steps with a sponsor following completion of the program.

Our Equine Assisted Treatment Programs Include:

  • Drug Addiction Rehab: They never intended to start a habit, but now they can’t get through the day without it. We have been there, and we can help.
  • Alcohol Treatment: One day they are drinking socially with their friends and family, the next they find they need that drink to start their day. Alcohol is sneaky, when it begins to interfere with everyday life – it is time to seek professional help.
  • Prescription Drug Treatment: Perhaps they were prescribed something to help them deal with, pain, depression, or anxiety – and now it has turned into an addiction. We will help them learn to cope with these and overcome their addiction.
  • Dual Diagnosis: Being diagnosed with a mental disorder such as depression, ADHD, or anxiety, often times includes prescription drugs. Unfortunately, these drugs are strong and highly addictive, once abused it is hard to learn to cope without the excessive use.

Upon completion, residents are equipped with knowledge of who they are, the tools to live in a world without drugs and alcohol, a responsibility for their own thoughts, feelings and behaviors, and a concrete relapse prevention plan. Residents are strongly encouraged to attend daily AA/NA meetings, obtain a sponsor, and continue to work the 12 Steps.
