Dog Therapy at Smokey Point Behavioral Hospital
Smokey Point Behavioral Hospital is proud to offer dog therapy as an integral part of our treatment plan.
Providing affection and comfort to patients is the primary purpose of a therapy dog. The therapeutic effect of dogs is that they allow patients to connect with them and feel their love. Watch this video to see how a therapy dog spends their day at Smokey Point.
