At Statewide Gambling Therapy Service, we recognise that people respond differently to treatment. What works for one person may be different for another therefore, we offer flexible treatment options for gambling help. You can choose whether you see a therapist face to face or if you prefer to work more independently through over the phone guided support.
As we are a health service adminstered through the Southern Adelaide Local Health Network we also offer an in-patient program at the Flinders Medical Centre. Irrespective of treatment preference, you will be supported by qualified and skilled health professionals.
The treatment program is an evidence-based therapy called Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which has been specifically designed to treat problem gambling. Our service has worked in collaboration with the Flinders Centre for Gambling Research to develop a world leading and unique behavioural model referred to as ‘graded exposure’. This therapy focuses on eliminating the urge to gamble so that you will no longer be driven by gambling behaviour.
Over 75% of people who complete our treatment program reach full recovery, and for some people this can be achieved in as little as four sessions. Our recovery rates relate to many gambling types such as pokies, sports betting, TAB, table games, Keno, gambling within games and online gambling among others.
There are no fees or charges, no waiting times or referral necessary. We pride ourselves in our confidentiality and respect towards our clients. We are here to help you eliminate the urge to gamble and regain control of your life.
