We’re a Pet-Friendly Rehab Facility

Table Of Contents

Did you know that we’re a pet-friendly rehab facility?

One of the main things holding people back from going to drug or alcohol treatment is their pets. Who will take care of them while you take care of you? Well, get this. At Circle of Hope, you can bring your furry friend with you*. We have quite a few dog moms and dads at our residential treatment center so we understand the profound and lasting impact that having your pet with you during rehab can have on your recovery. Just being near a pet or animal can have substantial beneficial effects on your mental health and well-being.

A Pet-Friendly Rehab Facility Can Have Profound Effects on Your Emotional State

Addiction is an isolating disease and one of the most difficult things about recovery is the struggle to rebuild relationships or to start fresh ones. Having a pet with you during treatment provides you with much needed judgment-free unconditional love. Everyone needs a snuggle after a hard day and you’ve got some hard days ahead of you.

When you first arrive at any rehab center, you might feel a bit uncomfortable. It’s a new place with new people. You’re going through a lot physically, mentally, and emotionally. Having your pet with you can give you a sense of comfort in an otherwise uncomfortable situation.

Being in a new place while in such a vulnerable state is enough to make anyone homesick. When something is new to you it can take a while to feel right. Even though going home sounds like a good idea, leaving mid-treatment is counterproductive. Having your furry friend by your side allows you to have that little piece of home to set your mind and soul at ease.

There Are Countless Physical Benefits of Animal Assisted Therapy

  • Studies show that animal-assisted therapy (AAT) is known to:
  • Reduce blood pressure
  • Reduce heart rate
  • Decrease reported anxiety
  • Elevate mood
  • Increase beta-endorphin levels
  • Decrease reported feelings of tension or stress
  • Stabilize mood
  • Improve anger management
  • Raise self-esteem
  • Improve frustration tolerance

Pets Are the Ultimate Conversation Starter

Have you ever been stumped for what to say? Do you get all clammed up when someone asks you to tell them “a little bit about you?” When you have a go-to topic picked out ahead of time it totally takes the social pressure off. Use your pet as a talking point. Talking about your love of animals is a great way to jumpstart any conversation. Even if your new friends are not animal people (and yes, there are people like this out there) it’s an opportunity to ignite a healthy and friendly debate.

You Can Be Nurturing

Before you get to rehab, the only person you’ve really been taking care of is you. And even that is debatable. You will learn so much during your first few weeks in rehab and one of the biggest things is that you can be a nurturing person. Having a pet around will prove that not only can you take care of yourself but you can keep another being alive and happy as well. This is a huge learning opportunity and a chance to prove that you can take care of someone other than yourself.

No More Excuses Not To Go To Rehab

One of the biggest reasons that people don’t go to rehab (believe us – we’ve seen just about every excuse in the book) is that they have existing responsibilities that are preventing them from cutting drugs and alcohol out of their lives. For most people, this means a job or children. But for some, it means their pet. When you choose a pet-friendly drug rehab this is one less thing you will have to make alternate arrangements for. One less excuse.

Ask us how you can bring your pet with you to treatment. You’ll be glad you did.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It

  • I'm from the suburbs of Chicago and have been in quite a few treatment centers. Circle of Hope is hands down the best and most comfortable rehab I have ever been in. Not to mention how caring and helpful all the staff are. The door to my counselors office was always open when ever you needed to talk. Everyone genuinely cares there and that’s what made it a special place for me. My four boys are going to get back their Sober and clean Dad back thanks to the help from Circle of Hope.

  • Circle of hope changed my life!! Great food, great staff, wonderful place! Awesome to get to know the amazing clients and see that i was not alone in my recovery. I made friends for life in the short time i got to spend there. Not a better facility anywhere in my opinion!!The team of employees, from the Technicians all the way up to the Owner, all have a patient first mentality.

  • Going to treatment at circle of hope was one of the best programs Ive participated in, they helped me get my life back. They have amazing staff and over all good natured people. They focus on all aspects of counseling , case management, meetings, different types of therapy, including trauma, one on one counseling. This is coming from someone who has been traumatized and neglected. They helped me get to the root of the problem. Which most times can feel very uncomfortable but they provide groups that you participate in and communicate to other addicts and hear their life stories. They really are an organization of team working to help heal the conflicted minds of us addicts that we faced everyday. I would highly recommend this treatment program to anyone suffering from substance abuse or mental health.
