Sierra Tucson Uses Horses As An Extremely Powerful Treatment Tool.
Sierra Tucson Adolescent Care, in Tucson Arizona 1-800-842-4487, utilizes the therapeutic qualities of riding and caring for horses, and sees it as an extremely powerful treatment tool. In their latest brochure they tell the story of one of their patients. "One of our first patients was an extremely violent, large kid who used anger as a defense mechanism; he was as tough as most men, and very streetwise. I watched him turn into a kid one day at the barn. He was standing by himself in one of the corrals, with his hands gently touching the forehead of Lady, his favorite horse. As I walked up to him, I could see huge tears running down his face. This was the first time he had cried since he had been in treatment. I asked him if he needed to talk and he said 'No, I just need to stay here and be with her.' It's been over a year since he finished treatment, and his mother tells me he's doing fine. I am convinced to this day that the animal was the key to opening this child up so he could feel his pain."
