Problem gamblers, their family members, and others affected by the gambler benefit greatly from combining at least two or more of the many recovery resources available in Arizona.
In addition to participating in recovery support groups, electing various self-exclusion options, and pursuing inpatient treatment (if necessary), many individuals also choose one-on-one, group, and/or family outpatient counseling to maintain and sustain their recovery.
The Arizona Department of Gaming's Division of Problem Gambling (DPG) subsidizes outpatient counseling for problem gamblers or anyone affected by their gambling (family, friends, co-workers, employers) through its Treatment Assistance Program (TAP).
Individuals seeking treatment may contact any provider on the TAP list; you are not restricted by county of residence.
Call the provider directly for information about services or to set up an appointment for assessment. Simply state that you are interested in the state-funded TAP program.
Although the recovery rate for compulsive gamblers who are provided formal treatment through a certified professional in Arizona is undetermined at present, the anecdotal information that exists is encouraging.
A professional intervention, if conducted under the guidance of a trained interventionist, counselor, psychologist, or other health care professional, can be an effective way to approach the gambler and encourage him/her to seek help.
Because the process could trigger pain, anger and resentment, the interventionist will help you and/or other family members prepare for confronting your loved one. You may wish to have information about Gamblers Anonymous meetings in Arizona on hand. ACCG can help with referrals to an interventionist.
Sometimes, no matter what you do (or don't do), your loved one may continue to gamble. If none of your efforts convince the gambler to stop gambling or seek help, it is important that you avoid becoming an "enabler." Seek professional counseling for yourself and contact Gam-Anon, CoDA, or another support group.
