Latest Best Drug Rehabilitation Blog Post Highlights How Dogs are Helping Addicts Recover

(PRWEB) September 17, 2014

In its latest blog post, Best Drug Rehabilitation, which offers treatment programs and believes that having family close by during a stay in rehab can make a big difference in whether or not the process is successful, is highlighting a member of the therapeutic care team that is making a profound difference in the lives of addicts across the country and around the world: dogs.

“Studies show that pet therapy can reduce the blood pressure, heart rate, and stress levels in recovering addicts,” commented Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “What’s more, dogs are profoundly non-judgemental and respond immediately to love and affection – which can be priceless for addicts who feel isolated and detached.”

As noted in the Best Drug Rehabilitation blog post, dogs trained for pet therapy duty hail from a variety of backgrounds – including those adopted from shelters and rescued from the streets – and are all typically:

  • leash, crate, and house-trained
  • well-socialized around both people and other dogs
  • calm, compliant and obedient
  • able to stay, sit, and heel on command
  • well-mannered and non-aggressive
  • physically fit and healthy

Added Per Wickstrom: “Dogs and other animals can truly make a profound, lasting difference in the lives of addicts, and help them achieve and maintain sobriety.”
