A safe space to build your recovery. The knowledge that you are not alone and working as part of a team to tackle and ultimately overcome your gambling addiction is a powerful feeling.

Locations

Gordon Moody currently offers residential treatment for men aged 18 and above at two locations: Beckenham, on the border of south east London and Kent and in Dudley in the West Midlands. The programme is the same at both sites and is delivered by therapists and support staff who are experts in gambling addiction.

Gordon Moody will also be offering residential treatment for women at a site in the Midlands from autumn 2021.

Applying for treatment

If you feel residential help may be what you require please fill in the Gambling Audit  that you will find at the bottom of this page. Once you have submitted this our referrals team will assess your application. 

We may require some additional information from you before a final decision is made but rest assured we will respond to your enquiry quickly and keep you updated with how your application is going. 

Once our team has made its decision we will contact you to either offer you a place on our waiting list or to signpost you to other gambling treatment options.

Pre-treatment support

Once accepted on our waiting list you’ll be offered pre-treatment support through weekly support calls from our trained staff as well as facilitated peer support virtual groups with others who are on the waiting list for treatment. 

These are safe spaces for you to ask questions about what lies ahead and to share your hopes, fears and expectations for your future journey with us and beyond. 

This is the first step in tackling your gambling addiction together and will help you to get used to speaking in groups before you enter treatment.  Sharing experiences will play a big part in your recovery and help to keep you on track as your journey through treatment progresses.

Two-week assessment

A warm welcome awaits you from our experienced team of therapists and support workers, whether in Beckenham or Dudley.

 In your first fortnight our staff and fellow residents in treatment will help you to settle in, slow down and make you feel a part of the therapeutic community that lies at the heart of all you will do. 

The knowledge that you are not alone and working as part of a team to tackle and ultimately overcome your gambling addiction is a powerful feeling. This fortnight is your opportunity to see whether residential treatment is going to suit you and allows the staff team to ensure our programme is the right one for you.

Twelve-week treatment programme

Once on the programme you will work closely with the whole staff team as we work with you to build your own road map” into recovery. 

With support from your assigned therapist you’ll create an action plan for the areas you wish to work over the following 12 weeks. The goals you set yourself here will be reviewed every four weeks and will continue to be looked at throughout your time in treatment and beyond to help you keep focused on yourself and your recovery even after completing the programme. 

You will do both one-to-one work and group sessions between Monday and Saturday. 

Saturday afternoons are reserved for activities off-site and give you an opportunity to explore the local area and try new things or perhaps rekindle old passions. Sunday is a day to relax but also to get prepared and focussed for the week ahead.

Please do not let cost stop you from applying for help from Gordon Moody because we can work with you to advise you on the best course of action so the costs to you will be as low as possible. We want you to get the help you deserve to deal with your gambling addiction
