Type of Service

Addictions Treatment - Problem Gambling

Program Description

Problem Gambling Services provides comprehensive assessment, individual and group counselling, treatment planning and referrals, and aftercare to help clients make positive lifestyle changes and achieve goals. We also work with family, friends, and concerned persons who are impacted by a loved one's gambling problem. Problem Gambling counsellors work closely with mental health service providers to serve clients who have both mental health and problem gambling concerns, and offer psychiatric consultation and treatment as needed. We provide service from a harm reduction framework, as well as abstinence based approach. Counselling is also available at Etobicoke General Hospital.
