Beachwood Center provides services and training in Integrative Equine Therapy (IET), a unique protocol for treating anxiety, grief, trauma, PTSD, and other stress related illnesses.
We serve both paying and non-paying clients; our target is 50% paid and 50% non-pay. All veterans, and community referrals from ministries and social services, are treated without charge.
With one of our founders a naval officer, the Center has focused on veterans with PTSD. This work has proved to be particularly successful, and we continue to expand our Veteran outreach.
Our founder who developed the IET protocol works primarily with individuals with issues stemming from early childhood trauma, and that work has grown dramatically by word of mouth. By numbers, this category Is the largest of our Community Services Program.
As anything related to horses, especially our highly selected warmbloods, is very expensive, our paid services cannot cover our free community services, so the difference is made up by grants and contributions. As Beachwood Integrative Equine Therapy grows its locations across the country, we will be increasingly dependent on contributions. For a list of corporate sponsors, see our Contributions Page.
