STAT INC EQuine Affect™ SUD Recovery: Equine Assisted Learning Program

Horse Supported Recovery for Substance Use Disorders (SUD)

Please correct the errors described below.


What this EQuine Affect™ IS: 12 Weekly; 2-hour Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) sessions for individuals, Men’s and Women’s small groups for people challenged with a Substance Use Disorder (SUD). EQuine Affect™ is a mostly ground based, with optional mounted exercises, Personal Development EAL program STAT Inc. has designed to support your courage and growth in recovery. It is an adjunct recovery supportive service.

You will have the opportunity to explore emotional intelligence, as you learn more about yourself through EAL sessions, which are strength based and resiliency focused. Rain or Shine, we are ready to work with you, for you. You can apply for the program scholarship while completing residential treatment or after 30 days of sobriety. *Some restrictions apply.

What this program IS NOT: an exclusive riding or horsemanship skills training, a SUD or diagnostic psychiatric evaluation, or psychotherapy processing group. Our intention is that you learn more about yourself and personal growth in recovery from horse and human team members.
