BRUNO THE THERAPY DOG
Besides being the loyal Rally Point mascot, our English Bulldog Bruno is currently in training to become a certified therapy dog. Bulldogs are known for their great courage and strength, but also for their sweet and gentle disposition. We believe this will translate into Bruno being an extremely effective therapy dog. Animal assisted therapy in an alcohol and drug addiction treatment center is proven to be beneficial on many levels. It increases the opportunities that the clinical staff has to obtain client background information and gain insight into their current emotional state. It can also help to identify unhealthy coping mechanisms and be used to guide clients towards healthier lifestyle choices and behaviors. All of these factors are very important when helping clients transition into a life of sobriety.
