Our gambling addiction treatment and recovery program

Nurture Health Recovery and Wellness Facilities have a scientific and medical approach to dealing with gambling addiction. The program is based on the Minnesota Alternative-model, DBT, the twelve-step method of rehabilitation as well as the latest research in the field of gambling addiction.

During the program therapists work with patients to help them develop an understanding of how past and current experiences affect their choices and behaviour. Patients are guided in how to make better choices and replace old, destructive behaviours with new, healthy habits.

Underlying trauma is often identified as the root of gambling addiction in the first few weeks of the program and in this case a patient’s stay may be extended to deal with unresolved trauma.

Before being discharged, therapists work with patients and develop an After Care program that connects them with support groups and other resources.

Nurture Health has a vibrant recovery community that meet regularly for fellowship. Patients are always welcome to visit and enjoy talks from therapists, doctors and others suffering from gambling addiction. Nurture Health makes the most of modern technology with many online resources that keeps patients and loved ones motivated, inspired and informed.
