As many as 10 million Americans deal with gambling addiction. More than two-thirds of compulsive gamblers also report committing crimes related to gambling. That's how complicated it can be to walk the walk of gambling disorder and recovery.
We want to help anyone with gambling and co-occurring disorders with an intensive treatment program that has worked successfully.
Our Algamus counselors help with:
My very first group meeting at Algamus, there were about a dozen other men and women from all across the country. And one by one, every single one of them is talking about how they processed gambling, emotionally and mentally, and they took every single word verbatim out of my mouth. I didn’t think I had a problem. I just thought no one else understood that I was so good at gambling. Now I’m blessed today. I have not wagered in any way, shape or form in over two years, and I’m proud of that.
Life based on luck can lead to frustration and loss of everything we possess: family, friends, and even life itself. ALGAMUS can help us see ourselves as we really are, learn the twelve steps of recovery and win back those whom we love.

Algamus saved my life and my family. It has taken a few years to earn back the trust and respect I had lost, but I am blessed to be healthier and happier than I would have believed possible.
A special "Thank you" to Rick Benson and crew. I am humbled by the work you do."
Algamus Client in Recovery
I attended the Algamus rehab program. They have professionally trained therapists that each specializes in areas that I needed to work on in my process of fighting my gambling addiction. I tried to overcome my addiction without any success. That included two previous rehabs. One of the things that also makes the Algamus program stand out is that they are exclusively dealing with gamblers. I am very blessed that I now have 2 1/2 years of recovery and I finally have some peace and serenity. Thank you Algamus."
