Type of Service

Addictions Treatment - Problem Gambling

Program Description

This program provides community-based services for persons experiencing problems related to process addictions such as gambling, internet use, gaming or shopping. ADAPT also offers services for individuals where alcohol and/or drug abuse co-exist with the gambling issues. Specialized youth services, consultations with other service professionals, and community presentations are also offered. All services are professional, fully confidential, and free of charge.

Access Information

Can be assessed in-house. Problem gamblers (or significant others) may call the ADAPT central office in Burlington to make an appointment for an assessment. The assessment appointment is within two or three days and usually takes one session to complete. Outpatient treatment is then provided based on the assessment results. Treatment length is geared to individual needs, and referrals may be made to other services if required. Clients are asked to refrain from attending service while impaired due to substance use.
