Exercise and Nutrition

It is important to note that exercise and diet play important roles in therapy for any addiction, particularly gambling. Therefore, you’ll participate in your own  exercise regimen and you will dine on nutritious meals prepared by our award-winning chef.

The Family Program

After the second week of gambling therapy, a two-day family program is recommended. This allows your family to begin to understand your dependency on gambling.  Also, it is our hope that they will work on their own issues.  Then they will learn how they can support you best.

Twelve-Step Meetings

Our peer counselor helps you understand the twelve step philosophy and how it applies to your gambling therapy. Everyone goes to at least two twelve step meetings per week.
