Equine-assisted therapy is an experiential learning process that involve activities with horses to promote human physical and mental health.

Guests are offered a group equine experience: Our program consists of four three hour sessions over two weeks. Individual equine therapy sessions are also available.
We at High Watch often observe that individuals who are clearly in need of treatment are unable to see it. People who struggle with addiction are often in denial about their situation and unwilling to seek help. They may not recognize the negative effects their behavior has on themselves and others. Family members want to help their loved one but that individual may not be receptive. We can help in these situations by assisting with a formal intervention. An intervention presents your loved one with a structured opportunity to make changes before things get even worse, and it can motivate him or her to seek or accept help.
Continuum of Care

For most individuals seeking addiction treatment, detox is the first step to breaking the physical and psychological hold that a substance has on their system. Withdrawing from drugs or alcohol can be a dangerous and even life-threatening process, and is best done under medical supervision. When an individual’s body becomes dependent on a substance, quitting cold turkey can cause their system to shut down. In a medically-supervised detox program, a caring medical team will oversee the withdrawal process, providing necessary medications and emotional support to ease symptoms and stabilize vitals.
