A Comprehensive Gambling Addiction Program
Williamsville Wellness is dedicated to individualized treatment programs designed for the client. We understand that each case comes with unique circumstances, requiring a different approach to realize truly effective gambling therapy. We believe that underlying issues cause people to compulsively gamble, and that trying to understand where one’s addiction comes from, and how to resolve those issues, is instrumental to a successful recovery from a gambling addiction.
Our focus rests on treating the whole person, and we have a team of licensed or certified professionals to help patients rediscover their mental and physical well-being upon starting their gambling addiction treatment program. Our ancillary staff includes physicians, consulting psychiatrists, psychologists, addiction specialists (gambling, alcohol, and other drugs), counselors, social workers, art therapists, personal trainers, life coaches, Yoga instructors, massage therapists, resident managers, and a chef. The mission of Williamsville is to provide our clients with the very best gambling addiction help imaginable, and with a 1 to 1 ratio of therapists to patients found under our roof, we offer gambling addiction treatment options that are incomparable in our field.
Some of our therapists have been lucky enough to find recovery, and can often understand the many difficulties people face when trying to find gambling addiction help that works for them. We are sympathetic to how things can seem insurmountable to the unique obstacles each person is facing, which is why we provide different gambling addiction treatment options to best suit the unique needs of the individual.
Our 10 Day Gambling Program is designed to assess the problems at hand, and devise a plan for the future that can realize the person you hope to find within yourself again. Compulsive gambling can lead to unwanted areas of darkness in life for some people, and our 10 Day Gambling Program starts with sessions that focus on the root of the addiction, particularly its severity and potential triggers. We then conduct mental health screening, psychological testing, and an accurate mental health diagnoses before creating an individualized recovery plan for the client.
We then educate patients on addiction and its effects on the brain and body, as well as signs of co-dependency and how to smartly overcome them. Shortly thereafter, the client will transition towards active counseling in individual and group sessions while performing assignments that are administered by the staff. Meanwhile, clients will begin to examine the psychological aspects of addiction with their therapists in order to better understand and address, if needed, stressors, communication and coping styles, anger management, as well as the exploration of change and finding the motivation and readiness to start making changes deemed necessary.
Our staff is dedicated to turning the whole person around when it comes to the client, and that includes their physical well-being too. Specialists will examine medication intake and/or administer proper medications, conduct yoga and exercise routines, set-up massage sessions, and advise clients on proper nutritional needs and how best to take care of one’s overall bodily health. In addition, we will discuss financial issues and how to address concerns pertaining to legal matters, budgeting, and discrepancies with one’s credit.
At the completion of our 10 Day Program, our staff will create a written focal evaluation and aftercare plan for the client. If deemed necessary, our 20 Day Gambling Program is a continuation of the 10 Day Program, with a more in-depth focus on aspects of compulsive gambling and how to attain active recovery from gambling addiction. Help is made available to address more severe cases that require more time, resolve areas of assessment through further psychological testing, management of medical and mental health issues, and give clients a chance to put their aftercare plan in place prior to leaving.
For clients with co-occurring addiction, we offer our 30-Day Program, which gives patients the option to fully master their aftercare plan to best ensure success once they have left Williamsville. This is an additional 10 days of treatment with an added focus on individual and group sessions, as well as for those who want several family/partner visits, need more time because of legal issues, and/or require written forensic reports for judges, lawyers, and probation officers.
Our mission at Williamsville Wellness is making comprehensive gambling therapy treatment options available to men and women suffering from gambling dependency. We believe everyone deserves the chance to stop using and start living, and the first steps towards a new beginning can be brought to light at Williamsville Wellness.
