For Adults


Centered at Bowling Green in Toughkenamon, PA, our pet therapy program offers addicts and alcoholics in recovery three different types of visits: 1) free-time visits; 2) visits in group discussion sessions; and 3) Sunday family visit time.  Our therapy companions offer folks love, comfort, and the stability that many Bowling Green residents need.

PAWS teams work directly with therapists at a number of different sites to assist in their clients' progress.  Besides the love and comfort that our pets give freely, they also provide the motivation for trying some new movements, working longer, and enjoying the activities.  This in turn allows the clients to relax while exercising, which helps their muscles work with less strain and tension.

PAWS does two types of visiting at our Easter Seals sites: "Group" visits and one-on-one work in conjunction with the physical therapist's and instructor's goals for the client.
