Therapy Dog Program
“Dogs are non-judgmental and love us
regardless of our background and mistakes.”
–Cindy Goss, Counselor
About Horizon’s Therapy Dog Program:
Therapy dogs are trained to provide affection and comfort to our patients. They fill an emotional void often experienced by patients with substance use and/or mental health disorders.

Our Dogs Aren’t Just Cute and Cuddly—They Are Therapeutic.
Research shows that interaction with therapy dogs increases the release of bonding and happiness hormones and decreases stress. Horizon’s adoption of a therapy dog program continues to improve and enhance practices, maintaining Horizon’s high-quality treatment and recovery programs.
