What is gambling rehab

Helping you understand

Most often when people talk about rehab, they are often referring to a place that helps those with drug or alcohol problems.  In the past, gambling has been viewed differently for a variety of reasons but is in fact very similar.

Compulsive gambling and the associated behaviours including denial, dishonesty and justification are consistent with the majority of addictions and often require a course of treatment in order to come to terms with and break the cycle of the addiction.

The gambling rehab programmes are designed to identify and address the causes of the compulsive gambling as well as putting clear strategies into place to maintain on-going recovery. 

The philosophy of the gambling rehab programmes at The Providence Projects is that the best form of recovery will be abstinence from gambling.  This may feel like a huge step to take but in our experience, those who have developed a gambling addiction are best served by not gambling at all.

Many problem gamblers do not want to give up completely because they may still ‘enjoy’ gambling, but many get to a point whereby the gambling is causing so many problems that they realise stopping completely may be the only answer.  Very commonly, compulsive gamblers will have an addictive personality and therefore cannot safely gamble at all.

The gambling rehab programme uses a variety of techniques to help the individual recover.  By exploring thinking patterns, beliefs and values, attitudes and relationships, we aim to help the individual see that very often the root of the issue may lay here.  A mix of one-one counselling group therapy, family therapy, relapse prevention, assignments, attendance at self-help groups, and other complementary therapies combine to treat these issues in order to deliver a successful treatment.

The success rates of those who have come to The Providence Projects to address their gambling is very high and we have no doubt that if you are truly committed to change, our programme will enable you to do so.

"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..."
