Clients will also have access to Gamblers Anonymous. These meetings allow clients to meet other peers within the community and build a network of support in addition to their treatment community. They also have access to sponsors who can take them through the 12 steps specifically regarding gambling, gambling addiction, and compulsive gambling. Having this support and resources helps the transition from gambling treatment to their next step in recovery.
At Compass Recovery Center we provide financial planning and monitoring education; in addition, we cover specific money management options and help clients develop plans designed to help overcome the gambling addiction or compulsive gambling. Clients will receive both group financial education and one-on-one financial education in order to make a specialized individual plan. This plan will be modified throughout their stay to fit their changing financial situation.
