Thanks to a generous donor with a passion for animal-assisted programming, a specially-trained therapy dog named Legend has joined the Dan Anderson Renewal Center (DARC) team. Legend, a Labradoodle, provides comfort and emotional support for guests at the Dan Anderson Renewal Center, where he attends groups and individual sessions. Paul Anderson, spiritual care manager, said "the Renewal Center is a place for healing, recharging and reconnecting. Legend is a perfect fit for our family here. To watch the way he attends to our guests in their time of need captures the essence of what I think our grateful alumni had in mind when they so generously gave us all the gift of the Renewal Center!" The Butler Center for Research recently published a Research Update entitled Animal-Assisted Therapy for Substance Use Disorders.
