Recovering is possible

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) defines recovery as: a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential. The journey of recovering from a problem with gambling is unique to each person but can be a powerful and meaningful experience. It’s important to know that just like with any new endeavor there can be challenges, barriers and setbacks along the way.

Treatment Works

Recovery from a problem with gambling is possible, and treatment works. There are millions of Americans living their best life in recovery who experienced problems with gambling. The more you learn about problematic gambling and recovery from it, the smoother the recovery journey will be.

What is Recovery?

Recovery from any kind of addiction looks different for different people, but most people agree that recovery is about finding hope in life by gaining a better understanding of one’s self. This may include looking at your strengths and weaknesses and making new mindful decisions around how to live with purpose through self-improvement.
