A very popular and effective therapy method used for treatment of those suffering from addiction involves horses. Equine Assisted Therapy and Equine Assisted Learning (the difference is whether a licensed therapist is involved in the process or not) are relatively new to the mental health community, but the results are impressive.
Mark Jorgensen is the founder and executive director of Desert Solace, a sex addiction and pornography addiction treatment center located in St. George, Utah. He has seen these results first-hand. “Equine therapy is amazing!” says Jorgensen, “anyone who has been around horses has recognized not only their power and beauty, but also the ability of these animals to tune in to human emotion.”
