The Stables at Smoky Mountain Lodge is a favorite of our residents. Located on 25-acres of beautiful farmland, residents can interact with a wide range of therapy animals; there is something here for every comfort level. Interacting with animals is a form of therapeutic intervention that helps residents to gain self-understanding and emotional growth.
Animal Assisted Therapy recognizes the special bond that can form between the client and the animal and the potential for emotional healing to occur when a relationship is formed. This type of therapy provides a non-judgmental environment away from the traditional therapy session.
