Bettor Choice Gambling Program

Betting on sports, buying lotto tickets, playing poker, slot machines, or roulette are only a few of the activities in which compulsive gamblers engage. While many prefer gambling in a casino, the rate of online gambling addiction continues to increase with increased use of the Internet.

MCCA has dedicated resources to treat those suffering from problem gambling with the Bettor Choice Gambling Program.  This is an outpatient gambling specific treatment program funded by the State of Connecticut.

Outpatient Treatment for Problem Gambling Includes
