Our 8 Gambling Treatment Modalities
The therapist helps the patient get to the primary problem that has caused them to abuse gambling. With the aid of all therapists sharing information the synergy allows staff and clients to understand the problem/problems in the shortest possible time so that they can be corrected.
Having someone who has walked the steps of the gambler and has found recovery gives hope and insight. Seeing that recovery is possible allows one to get on the right road for themselves.
Art therapy is employed to help the individual identify causes of gambling addiction. Our art therapist, who has 20 years of experience in the field, has acknowledged instruments and interprets them for the individual to help give deeper meanings.
Hypnotherapy is used to help with abstinence both short and long term. Hypnosis helps to reduce barriers so that the individual can explore conflicts that he has suppressed for many years and that may have lead to the addiction.
Addiction impacts the entire family. Weâ€™ll help your loved ones understand the cycle of addiction, show them how they can help you while you recover, and create an ongoing action plan for healing.
Coping Therapy employs techniques which guide clients to bypass their limited, addictive thinking patterns and access positive internal resources. Clients are empowered to make healthy new choices which facilitate success in their recoveries.
Relationship Therapy cultivates the client’s awareness of his or herÂ patterns in intimate relationships, with an emphasis on the dynamics that fuel the addiction process. With or without the presence of a partner in therapy, clients begin the process of transforming their interpersonal dynamics to support their emotional well-being, a fundamental part of recovery.
Having a full time addictionologist, who also does individual treatment, allows one to have the benefit of the proper pharmacoltherapy.
