Accepting that you have a gambling problem is the first step to recovery. The next step is to enroll in a program provided by gambling addiction treatment centers to help you get over the condition. But how do you know what kind of program is best for you?
The program is largely determined by how long you have to stay at the facility of your choice. Some programs are designed for clients who require long-term treatment, while others are for those who only need a few weeks to uncover the reasons behind their addiction and learn how to deal with them.
Most gambling rehab centers have a 28 to 30-day program, though 60 to 90-day programs are available for those who have a serious gambling dependency. Here at Williamsville Wellness, we are able to offer shorter inpatient treatment times thanks to our holistic approach to gambling addiction.
Our basic program only lasts 10 days. During this period, the focus will be on discovering the roots of the addiction. The program aims to shed light on the triggers of the condition, its severity, and its negative effects on the mind and body. At the end of 10 days, you can leave the facility with an aftercare plan that will help ensure long-term recovery from gambling addiction.
Should you need more days in treatment due to co-occurring health issues such as substance abuse, you can opt for our 20-day program. The additional 10 days can provide you with a more in-depth understanding of compulsive gambling and allow you to put your aftercare plan into practice so you can attain active recovery once you leave the facility. Further psychological testing and management of mental health issues are also given to resolve severe issues.
Finally, a 30-day program is offered if you have a recurring gambling addiction. This treatment period further allows you to master your aftercare plan so you can rest assured of being able to handle your addiction with success outside of the facility. The 30-day program is also ideal if you need more visits from families and friends, need help for certain legal issues, or are required to provide written forensic reports for judges, lawyers, and probation officers.
If you are unsure of what kind of program best suits your situation, you can contact us online or by phone for consultation. You can also choose to take our 10-day program and, with our help, decide whether you need to extend the length of your stay for further treatment.
