Problem Gambling

When gambling venues were expanding in the Province of Ontario, it was known that a percentage of the population may develop a problem with gambling.  The Provincial Government committed resources to the establishment of a fully funded system for the research, prevention and treatment of problem gambling.

Addcitions and Mental Health Services is funded to provide direct community counselling/treatment services for problem gambling in Hastings and Prince Edward County.

Counselling/Treatment Services Provided Include:

  • Initial and ongoing assessment
  • Treatment planning
  • Case management activities
  • Brief intervention
  • Lifestyle and personal counselling
  • Relapse Prevention
  • Family intervention
  • Follow-up and aftercare
  • Outreach activities – early intervention

Services are designed to assist the individual to develop skills to manage gambling and related problems, and/or maintain and enhance treatment goals.

Services typically offered in office, however, may be offered in a variety of settings including outreach to the service recipient’s home, school, or other service setting.

Referral Process:

Anyone concerned about their gambling can access services regardless of their stage of change simply by contacting the agency directly to request services or afterhours may contact central intake at:  310-OPEN.

Family/Significant Others:

If concerned about someone else’s gambling you can call AMHS-HPE directly for information and referrals for further assistance.
