Clients can begin to see how overcoming a substance use disorder can be a valuable part of the journey to better understanding themselves. Just as the interaction with the wolves allowed clients to dispel some of the preconceived notions they have had surrounding wolves, they realize it is their job to provide those interactions to people to help dispel negative stigmas surrounding substance use disorder.
Clients receive an opportunity to experience wolves as they are instead of just holding up a skewed perception based on our cultural bias. Through the program of wolf therapy, clients are learning to embrace beings as individuals. By challenging their assimilated perceptions of wolves, clients can more easily discard preconceived notions surrounding substance use disorder.
