Areas of Focus
Equine Program

The Arbor is a working ranch with a world class equine center. Each week our clients participate in an equine assisted therapy program that utilizes the innate gentleness and natural instincts of horses to help them recognize their own blocks to authenticity, intimacy, communication, and trust.

Gender-Specific Programs

We have taken great steps at The Arbor to provide a safe and supportive gender-specific environment, where each individual can heal physically, emotionally and spiritually with limited distractions. True gender-specific programs, where all programming, activities and living are totally separate for men and women, provides the security to explore the deep wounds of addiction.
