The Recovery Village

Some pets are deeply attuned to human behavior and emotions. With just their presence, they have an uncanny ability to lift our spirits in a way nothing else can. According to the Mental Health Foundation, “the companionship that a pet offers is a great way to reduce anxiety and stress.”

This is why pets are often used as a means of therapy to improve mental health, including in rehab settings like The Recovery Village. They can also benefit individuals who struggle with mental health disorders that co-occur with drug or alcohol addictions. These co-occurring disorders include depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In some cases, a healthy mental state can help individuals stay sober and drug-free. If you’re in recovery and trying to cope with a mental illness, consider the many benefits of adopting a pet.
