Gambling Addiction Services

Specialized services are available throughout the state for individuals and families who are experiencing problems related to gambling addiction. Counselors receive specialized training in this area and provide a range of services to address the unique and critical needs of this population.

Services include:

  • Individualized assessment
  • Treatment plan for each individual

Group sessions deal with the nature of compulsive gambling, denial and recovery, the relapse process, relapse prevention, and other pertinent issues. Following the completion of services recommended in the treatment plan, referrals are made to continuing care groups as appropriate (e.g., the National Council on Problem Gambling, Gam-Anon).
