Gambling addiction can interfere with your finances, relationships, and life. Cascadia offers free individual, group, and couples counseling for Oregon residents. Treatment is customized for each client and can help you regain control of your life, deal with the stresses and problems created by gambling, and build new skills to help you reduce your dependence on gambling.

We understand that addictive gambling can be relentless and unforgiving. It can destroy not only the life of the gambler, but it also impacts the financial and emotional safety of their friends and family. The first step is recognizing and acknowledging the gambling issue.

For more than 20 years, our gambling treatment program has been changing lives, restoring hope, and promoting lasting recovery. Our staff has undergone specialized training and has years of experience addressing all of the challenges that come with gambling addiction.

A recipient of the Oregon Treatment Program Awardee of Excellence, our treatment uses addictions and mental health approaches to help you regain control of your life. Any eligible adults dealing with a gambling problem and who are in need of help are welcome to utilize our services.

Problem gambling occurs in two to three percent of the population, making it far more common than most people know. It is an issue that can remain hidden until the point at which a financial or emotional crisis surfaces.

Problem gambling is a complex issue. There are biological, psychological, social and financial components to it. Problem gambling operates in many ways like a drug addiction, except the person is addicted to a behavior and not a substance. Problem gamblers generally have thought about stopping, but often need help to do it. Problem gambling almost certainly impacts brain chemistry, creating an altered state that occurs during gambling that can become addictive for some people. Chasing this altered state, and chasing lost money, can bring about transient character changes, depression and anxiety. It can be difficult to stop without some kind of support or guidance.

Cascadia offers FREE treatment for problem gamblers and/or their loved ones. Our comprehensive program provides individual, group, couples counseling and financial education. Experience has shown that this type of comprehensive approach works very well. We will work with you to set up a program that is tailored to your specific, individual needs. We also provide problem gambling prevention services in Clackamas County.

You can expect to talk with a professional with specialized training and clinical experience in treating problem gambling. Our treatment team respects just how difficult it can be to initiate counseling, and we work to provide a caring and accepting place for help, and for sharing your experience. Independent research has shown our program to be quite successful
