Problem Gambling Services

Problem Gambling Services at Bluewater Health is a designated Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care outpatient treatment program for problem gamblers and their families. Services are free of charge and confidential; anyone can self-refer. Individual counseling sessions provide support in identifying and treating problem gambling and its adverse consequences. Education is provided to help individuals understand the addictive nature of gambling as well as triggers, myths and risk factors that lead to problem gambling. We can also refer to one of four residential treatment programs located in Ontario.
