Equine therapy teaches mindfulness, improves health

Violet Acevedo

Holistic therapies like meditation, yoga and mindfulness teach individuals new methods of tolerating stress and handling challenges.

Violet Acevedo lived in a constant state of anxiety over thoughts of past trauma and worry about the future. Drugs made it go away. However, through holistic therapies at Crossroads, she learned better ways to cope.

Through a unique treatment program with Naples Therapeutic Riding Center and David Lawrence Center, she processed feelings and reactions using horse-related exercises. Giving the horse all of her attention freed her of worry.

Practicing mindfulness and yoga, while enjoying the moment, are helping her stay sober.
