Bettor Choice Problem Gambling Treatment Services

What is Bettor Choice?

At Bettor Choice we offer counseling for adults (18+) who struggle with gambling as well as those affected by gambling (i.e., spouse, family members and significant others).

What Services Do We Offer?

We offer individual, couples, family, and group counseling via telehealth. We currently have one group on Thursdays at 1 pm via telehealth. This is our Bettor Choice Recovery Group – an evidenced-based psycho-educational group to gain tools to support recovery from gambling.

Peer Counseling
The Bettor Choice Peer Counselor is a person with the life experience of problem gambling and recovery who can provide information, support and advocacy to people who are new to recovery or those who seek help managing the financial, legal, housing, employment or other consequences of their gambling.

Medication management as a treatment option, if necessary.
