Horses help people fight addiction

People in addiction recovery can find comfort and communication in the company of horses at facilities across the world, such as The PEACH Pit, that practice equine-assisted therapy.

In this video, clients are at a rural facility in Kinderhook, N.Y. called Stable Solutions.

Equine-assisted therapy helps patients open up, thanks to the animals’ sensitivity to body language, says co-founder Keri NearyWood, a social worker and equine specialist.
