John Brooks Recovery Center, the Atlantic County-based recovery center, is offering a new Gambling Treatment Program to assist individuals with problem and disordered gambling.

Just as people develop tolerance to substances and require more and more to feel the same effects, people with gambling problems also need to bet more often or with larger and higher amounts. They all tend to suffer from withdrawal symptoms when attempting to quit.

All patients admitted into the program must also have a co-occurring substance use disorder diagnosis. In addition to its Gambling Treatment Program, JBRC also offers individual counseling, group counseling, family counseling, psychoeducation classes, medication assisted treatment, psychiatric services, medical services and educational services. Read More from ROI-NJ.
