Uncover the essentials of gambling addiction and recovery at Prescott House. From recognizing symptoms to understanding post-treatment options, we guide you every step of the way.

Addressing Your Concerns

Understanding your struggle with gambling addiction and seeking help can be filled with questions and uncertainties. Here, we provide insights on recognizing a gambling problem, treatment options, and ways to seek help, along with many other aspects of addiction and recovery. This is a safe space for you to learn and gain the knowledge needed to make informed decisions on your path to recovery.

What are the After Care Services like?

Upon completion of our 30-day gambling treatment program, our treatment team connects you with an individual therapist, group therapy, and local Gamblers Anonymous meetings. We coordinate with well-known Peer Services Coordinator and Certified Gambling Counselor II, Shirley Hoak of Problem Gambling Services of Rhode Island, for aftercare programming. Shirley has extensive knowledge in gambling addiction and recovery, in addition to being a speaker at the National Council on Problem Gambling.

How can you recognize a gambling addiction?

While many people engage in gambling without developing an addiction, it becomes problematic when individuals continue gambling despite negative consequences. Addiction emerges when the allure of gambling outweighs other enjoyable aspects of life, such as spending time with loved ones. If gambling begins to interfere with your family life or causes sleep disturbances, it may be turning into an addiction.

Is gambling addiction considered a mental illness?

Gambling addiction is the only behavioral addiction recognized as a medical disease. It stands as a non-substance-related disorder in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). While terms like “sex addiction” or “video game addiction” are used colloquially, they aren’t officially classified as medical diseases. Pathological gambling shares certain diagnostic criteria with substance dependence, such as tolerance, withdrawal symptoms, and the inability to reduce or stop gambling.

Where can individuals seek help for a gambling addiction?

If you suspect you have a gambling addiction, reach out to a professional for guidance. Your primary care provider or therapist can assist you in finding appropriate treatment options. Moreover, professionals treating gambling disorders can address co-occurring conditions. Support groups such as Gamblers Anonymous can also provide assistance, and some states offer gambling helplines. The National Helpline for substance abuse and mental health services is available at 1-800-662-4357.

At Prescott House our holistic approach to gambling addiction treatment extends beyond therapy sessions. We understand that a comprehensive recovery involves addressing various aspects of your life. As such, we provide comfortable housing and nutritious meals, ensuring that you have a supportive environment conducive to healing. Call us today – (732)-642-6059

How prevalent is gambling addiction?

Approximately 1% of American adults struggle with severe gambling problems. Surprisingly, young people and young adults have a higher rate of gambling-related issues, with 6% to 9% affected.

Can gambling addiction be overcome?

While recovering from gambling addiction can be challenging, it is indeed possible. Although no specific medications target gambling addiction, some can address co-occurring conditions such as anxiety or depression. Motivational interviewing and various therapies, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and family therapy, can also be beneficial. Different individuals respond differently to treatment approaches, so it’s essential to find what works best for you.

If you're looking for a fresh start and a life building experience. This is the place. Not only is the town of Prescott a beautiful town, the staff at Prescott House are welcoming and clearly have a passion for what they do.I arrived at the Prescott House at the start of 2021 and stayed for both the inpatient and outpatient (aftercare) program. The experienced and professional staff helped me look into things that I never thought of and turn me on to a much more healthy life style.

I went to Prescott House a broken man. I didn’t want to go and I didn’t think I needed it. Thank goodness my parents were strong enough to hold that boundary with me. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but this program provided me the structure and therapy I needed to live a better life where I was no longer a slave to substance use. I will forever be grateful for everyone at Prescott House.

The work they do is nothing short of a miracle!

This place saved life. It was it easy by any means but it was exactly what I needed. I can here after I did a 45 inpatient treatment facility and this place really helped me further my recovery. He also helped me get reintegrated into society so when I was able to leave getting a job wasn’t as stressful or anything of that nature. All the staff and counselors are awesome. The meetings out in that area are great, there is not one you can’t find and sometime of the day. If you are planning on a year or so treatment facility for transitional living I would suggest AFTER a 29-45 inpatient program I would suggest P-House, call and reach out to Geoff Patterson and he will guide you in the right direction! If I could give this place more that 5 starts I would!!!! 10 ⭐️!

I can’t thank The P House enough for what it did in my journey. I was in my late forties when I walked into the house. My life had crumbled all around me and I wanted to change my behaviors. After 30 days in a treatment center, I knew I needed something more to make a real change but didn’t know what that would look like. The Prescott House was recommended and after some quick research I committed to 3 months. I left my family and kids to take the chance to change my life. Needless to say, 7 months later, I completed the recovery program they had set for me, and I needed every day of it. Recovery is not a course or a quick fix, it’s a commitment and in my case lots of humility which I was reminded daily I had very little of…lol

Without Prescott House, I would be in jail, an institution, and surely dead. They taught me how to live life on life's terms, not my own. Thank you for helping me save me from myself!

The Prescott House saved my life.  I had struggled with addiction and mental illness for most of my adult life and when I arrived at the P House  I was desperate for help.  When I arrived I was shocked by the circumstances I had found myself in, but the professionalism, friendliness, and competency of the staff helped the transition be as smooth as possible.  The community of men was always supportive and welcoming and the quality of therapy was unparalleled.  At the P House I learned to shed my shame and also learned to love myself and others by feeling fully accepted by everyone in the community.  I honestly can't recommend the program enough - it works if you work it!

I had a strong response to this Spring’s news of a pandemic: Our adult son is not on the street. The thought came to me again and again. Our adult son is not on the street. He is safe. He is healthy. He has the love of a good woman and a precious son. He is serving others as an essential worker. His father and I cannot imagine these last years being possible without his stay at Prescott House. Short-term rehab had not been enough to allow him to heal and begin the journey to the man he is today. The skillful staff at Prescott House provided a living model of life in recovery and the structure and support to pass their knowledge on to our son. They supported us as parents with compassion and gave us hope.
