Algamus has been providing treatment for compulsive gambling and problem gaming since 1992.
Our mission is to create an environment for our clients in which they begin to feel safe enough to slow down and begin healing the effects of addictive gambling on them, their loved ones, and even friends/employers.
Algamus is one of the only residential gambling treatment programs in the United States that treats gambling and only gambling. Many on our staff are in recovery from compulsive gambling and understand the unique issues surrounding the gambling. We are an intimate program and our staff to patient ratio is almost one to one.
Our 30-day+ residential program gently guides the addicted gambler into a place of acceptance and empowerment to make the behavioral changes needed to create a life free from Gambling and other addictive behaviors. Some of our treatment modalities include:
- Cognitive & behavioral therapy;
- 12-Step programs like Gamblers Anonymous;
- Trauma resolution;
- Somatic Release;
- Equine therapy;
- Yoga & Meditation;
Our Masters Level Therapists and internationally certified gambling counselors use a 12–Step model accompanied by many other modalities to help our clients recreate the lives that have crashed down around them. Beyond daily groups and frequent individual sessions with a primary therapist or counselor, Clients will participate in equine-assisted psychotherapy with EAGALA trained Therapists, day trips to surrounding areas like Sedona, and a fitness regimen that includes weekly yoga sessions to enhance mindfulness and a gym membership.
We also offer a family program because a strong support system is critical in supporting recovery. Algamus offers family sessions and even a clinical family weekend to create strong networks and help the healing process.
At Algamus, we also have the Recover Strong program which focuses on using exercise as a part of addiction treatment.
For many of our clients, compulsive gambling has created a financial contrain on the individual and the family. We are happy to accept most commercial insurance plans to ease the financial burden of getting help. Check to see if your insurance provider is accepted.
All of the above is offered in beautifully appointed family-style residences located in the pines of Prescott, Arizona.
