GambleAware publishes report on residential rehab program
GambleAware has recently published the results of an evaluation of its residential rehab initiative.
The program in question was originally commissioned by the gambling charity approximately three years ago and aimed to provide support to people experiencing problematic gambling behaviors along with a range of other severe mental, physical, or addiction-related disorders.
The service was launched on behalf of GambleAware by two non-profit organizations, Gordon Moody and Adferiad Recovery, which provided clients with various intensive treatments in a residential setting. The former focused mainly on custom-tailored treatments relating to gambling, while the latter provided a variety of other types of support. Following the core treatments of the program, clients were provided with further support in transitioning to their homes.
GambleAware’s evaluation of the program covered the period between January 2022 and April of last year and found that the demand for residential rehab initiatives is quite high. The report also found that the initiative produced encouraging results for its clients, which included measurable progress in terms of their mental health and gambling behaviors. GambleAware added that following the program’s treatments, clients reported experiencing enhancements in a number of areas of their lives, including in their relationships and financial situations.
