Gambling Addiction Rehab

Break Free from Gambling Addiction

At The Bardo, we recognise the emotional challenge of confronting gambling addiction. We commend your decision to take a step towards a healthier, more balanced life. Our mission is to support you with care, compassion, and expertise on your path to wellness.

Understanding the intricacies of gambling addiction is a vital first step in the recovery process. Our team creates a safe and nurturing environment tailored to your specific needs, prioritising your mental and emotional well-being with evidence-based practices and providing essential emotional support.

Once you decide to start your recovery journey, your path to healing can begin immediately. Within 24 hours, the Bardo team will conduct an intake assessment over the phone to develop a personalised recovery plan based on your unique requirements.

After the intake assessment, we will arrange an appointment with The Bardo’s counsellor who will assess your readiness for recovery and discuss any essential interventions for your stay.

Recovery is a personal journey, and we offer high-level support, empathy, and encouragement every step of the way.
