CCCAS is acutely aware of the concerns surrounding addictive behaviors, including problem gambling. While for some people a visit to the local casino or racetrack, playing the Lottery or small games of chance, or even playing church bingo can be an enjoyable activity, for many others it can become an addiction.
Our counselors will work with you, or your loved one, to identify the triggers that lead to the compulsion to gamble and will work on developing a plan to overcome the need to participate in an activity that will ultimately only lead to sorrow and hardship for the individual and/or his/her loved ones.
As an important component of our Drug & Alcohol services, the Addictions / Problem Gambling service strives to fully implement a Recovery Oriented System of Care (ROSC) with each of our clients. We work with clients to recognize, develop and utilize their unique personal strengths; to rely on their natural support systems for help and support; and to access community resources that are available to assist them in their recovery efforts. We work from a person-centered and strength-based perspective that believes in each person's ability and potential to overcome his/her addiction, regardless of the source.
