What Happens In Gambling Rehab?

Jun 28, 2018 By Paul Spanjar 0 comments

Gambling addiction, or problem gambling is still considered to be a relatively new definition of pathological gambling. But as gambling addiction is on the rise, gambling rehab programmes are increasing in demand. If you concerned about a loved one’s gambling habits or your own, please read on to discover what happens in a gambling rehab:

Gambling addiction assessment

We offer a free assessment at our residential gambling rehab. This help us understand more about you, the intensity of your gambling addiction problem and your personal circumstances.  An assessment can be completed either face-to- face or on the phone. You will speak to our non-judgmental trained addiction counsellors, confidentially, for about forty minutes. Then we will discuss your admission.

Primary gambling addiction treatment

At our private rehab, we offer a variety of gambling addiction programmes. Our primary treatment programme will usually last between 4 – 6 weeks.

When you begin, you will be welcomed on your arrival and start your full assessment and induction.  This helps us understand what you wish to achieve and the best ways we can support your recovery. Your dedicated personal therapist will design a gambling addiction treatment plan tailored to you.

The primary treatment programme will involve exploring any potential underlying issues, improving your insight into addiction, forming techniques to reduce the risk of relapse and building your self-esteem.

Secondary gambling addiction treatment

Rehab programmes are more successful if they last longer than 4-6 weeks. Treatment for gambling addiction may vary depending on the needs of the individual, but we find more people prefer to continue to secondary treatment. In this part of your gambling addiction treatment you will receive further preparation on how to live without gambling. This includes a full peer evaluation, focussing on identifying barriers to recovery, one-to-one counselling and group therapy sessions. At The Providence Projects, we encourage patients to visit home to help them transition after the treatment is complete. We offer therapy and support for families of addicts to ensure healthy and open communication.

Gambling addiction aftercare

Gambling rehab is a great way to help you learn more about your addiction and develop techniques to reduce the risk of a relapse. But your path to recovery will continue after you leave the clinic. We will work with you to create a post treatment plan to help you recognise triggers and cope with stressful situations. We can also devise an aftercare programme or find support in your location. The Providence Projects are always to available to chat and give our advice whenever you need it.

"An unassuming house in the heart of Boscombe where miracles happen. From my initial talk with Paul, the admission process with Jon and my induction with Darryl, I was treated with compassion, empathy and understanding. All the staff had been in the same position as me!...If you are looking for a wealth of experience and knowledge around addiction, a safe environment to turn your life around and a solid foundation for your ongoing recovery you will not be disappointed.”
"Today my husband Paul is 1 year clean and sober thanks to The Providence Projects, he has found himself again and is living the life he deserves. " A life beyond his wildest dreams "… He initially signed up for 1 month but soon realised he needed a further 2 months. Paul has been dedicated and followed the advice given to him. He would not be here today if he hadn't been to The Providence Projects. I cannot thank or praise the program and staff enough…”
"A very special place, with wonderful staff. 3 years on life is amazing. Thank you so much for everything you all did for me. Alcohol dependant and a chronic gambler the Provi gave me a platform to turn life around and that it has, meaningful relationships, wonderful friends and most importantly peace of mind. You told me good things would happen and they have - and continue to do so. Highly recommended..."
