Did you know that having a pet can lower your blood pressure, decrease feelings of loneliness, and provide tangible social support? In fact, pets even change the biochemistry of our brains, including increasing levels of oxytocin. This is the same brain chemical that is to thank for a mother’s happiness with her newborn baby and is linked to slower heart rates and inhibited stress hormones. It’s no wonder why pups are considered man’s best friend!
True Recovery is one of the few pet-friendly rehab centers in Orange County. Rather than turn your four-legged friends away, we actually encourage you to bring a companion because we have seen the positive effects of pet-friendly therapy. During your recovery journey, your pet will likely serve as a companion, friend, and support system. We’ve accommodated all kinds of pets into our client’s recovery, including dogs, cats, birds, and even pot belly pigs.
At True Recovery, we take every step necessary to accommodate your pet in our pet-friendly rehab center. While they may not attend group or individual therapy with you, they will be comfortable, safe, and happily awaiting your return in our beautiful residences.
