The Gordon Moody Association is a charity providing support and treatment for people who are severely addicted to gambling.
The 12-week residential service offers both individual and group therapy, with the benefit of living in a therapeutic community, which the association say works for many people, where other forms of intervention have not.
Residents learn new coping skills, to help with recovery and integration back into society.
A women-only service is available.
After-care following the residential treatment includes outreach workers to support you as long as you need them. For example, support to access counselling or get back into education or work. Halway accommodation is available for relapse-prevention work, or housing advice.
The charity offers a Gambling Therapy website, with a peer-support community for ex-residents, friends and family.
There is no charge for treatment as the charity seeks funding from other sources. However you may need to pay for your accommodation and living costs, usually either through state benefits or your own funds, and this will be discussed with you at the initial assessment.
