STAT Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) Program

Horse Supported Recovery for Substance Use Disorders (SUD)

Please correct the errors described below.


What this program IS: 12 Weekly; 2-hour Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) sessions for Men’s and Women’s small groups for people challenged with a Substance Use Disorder (SUD). This is a ground based, no-riding Personal Development EAL program STAT Inc. has designed for your personal growth and generously funded by the State of Pennsylvania Commission for Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) to support your courage and growth in recovery. It is an adjunct recovery supportive service.

EAL sessions are strength based and resiliency focused. You will explore emotional intelligence, as you learn more about yourself based on a methodology developed by the Equine Assisted Growth And Learning Association (EAGALA). 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: a 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.
