Led by Ashley Balysky, St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program & Colleen Dell, University of Saskatchewan, this project will look at the impact of a visiting St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog at Methadone Assisted Recovery Services in the Saskatoon Health Region, where clients in highest need for motivation related to their HIV and/or addiction status will be introduced to the dog for the love and support it can offer. The experience will be empirically evaluated.
