What is a Pet-Friendly Rehab?

A pet-friendly rehab is a treatment facility for drug and alcohol addiction that allows clients to bring their pets with them while attending rehab. 

Most traditional rehab programs have strict no-pet policies, which can make it difficult for people with pets to find care for them during their time away. It can also be hard to leave a beloved companion behind during what is often a big life change. 

Having your pet alongside you at pet-friendly treatment centers can help make you feel more comfortable during the challenging phase of withdrawal and into early recovery. As you progress into your sobriety, your pet can make you feel more at ease as you create new and healthier routines.

At Gratitude Lodge’s pet-friendly treatment centers, we offer a warm welcome to you and your pet as you begin your journey to recovery at our pet-friendly luxury California rehab center.

The Benefits of Pet-Friendly Rehab

Having a companion along for your recovery journey goes far beyond playing fetch and listening to soothing purrs. Pets provide many benefits including:

Improved Mental Well-Being

Engaging in addiction recovery with your pet alongside you can give you a renewed sense of purpose. You’ll need to care for your pet and place their needs upmost, while at the same time focusing on your recovery. In return, positive interactions with your pet will help your brain to produce endorphins naturally after relying on addictive substances to provide euphoria for so long.

Walking your pet for instance during recovery can improve your overall well-being. Exercising is proven to boost mood, but it can seem like too much effort in the early days of recovery. If you have a pet to consider, you’ll feel compelled to get outside at least once a day. Exercising can trigger the release of dopamine and other brain chemicals associated with positive mood. 

As well as improving your overall well-being and physical health, having and caring for your pet at a rehab where you can take your dog or cat can deliver mental health benefits like reduced anxiety during your recovery from drug addiction or alcoholism.


Recovery from substance abuse can be an intensely lonely experience at times. Many people feel that nobody understands what they are going through. If you feel this way, it can be tempting to withdraw further from others, often leading to increased feelings of loneliness and possibly episodes of depression. When you attend treatment centers that allow pets, you can decrease the feeling of being alone, and you’ll always have a friendly face offering unconditional love and support.

If you don’t have a pet, you can still benefit from interacting with other’s pets during your recovery at Gratitude Lodge.
