Gambling Recovery

Gambling in Oklahoma has changed dramatically over the past few years with more than 110 casinos opening across the state plus horse tracks and racinos. This is a significant problem for the 1% of Oklahomans who have gambling related disorders, sometimes gambling themselves into financial ruin or worse.

If gambling is causing a problem in your life, ask yourself the following questions. If you answer yes to seven or more, we encourage you to make an appointment with one of our therapists, so we can help you with a treatment and recovery plan.
