Secondary Treatment for Gambling Addiction

Gambling Rehab

Secondary treatment is recommended as part of any rehab programme as all evidence demonstrates that longer engagement in the programme improves the chances of long term success.

With regards to gambling in particular, much of the therapy during this stage of treatment will concentrate on from the foundations built during the primary stages of the rehab programme.  The difficulty when dealing with addiction is often that the individual will become convinced that they are ‘cured’ and are in danger of becoming overconfident.

In this phase of gambling rehab, you will be given more responsibility and will be preparing for life after rehab.

During this stage, we continue to build upon the self-esteem whilst at the same time identifying and working on the thinking and behaviour which leads back to addiction.  In secondary treatment, clients will have a full peer evaluation to comprehensively identify blocks and resources to recovery, engage in one-one counselling to address issues identified in the treatment plan as well as intensive daily group therapy programmes.

There is also quite a strong focus on relapse prevention and how to apply the skills learnt here in the outside world.  The relapse prevention element of this programme will include some education elements, some written elements, skill straining and role play so that you are best prepared for life after treatment.

Commonly during this phase of treatment, we would also encourage clients to visit home in order to experience what that is like after a period of time in rehab.  This can also raise some issues which had been previously not been identified.

After successful completion of secondary treatment you will ‘graduate’ from rehab.  These are magical days whereby we celebrate your achievements with your group and/or your family before putting your aftercare plan into action.

"Am so so grateful to the Provy. Simply would not be alive today without them. I was skin and bones, a ghost who had given up on life. I found a programme that I could work that has not just kept me sober, but has given me back a way of life that I never had had before. I feel now that I was meant to walk through those doors, I didn't understand at the time how ill I was. Provy staff and peers, supported me, signposted me, councelled me, hugged me, encouraged me, and never gave up on me. Today, I am looking after my son who is off school sick. It's taken 18 months to see him. And without the providence project, I am absolutely sure it wouldn't have happened. Today, is a miracle for me and my son. Thank you, I am so so grateful to you all xxx
"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 " as it says in the big blue book - it's true
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 I found them very supportive and would not hesitate to recommend them."
"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..."
