Treatment & Recovery

The Responsible and Problem Gambling Program-Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch (GPEB) of the Ministry of Finance delivers and supports an integrated network of clinical treatment services throughout the Province. GPEB is responsible for the provision of problem gambling services through contracted professional counsellors. These barrier-free services are available free of charge to anyone who wishes to access them without waitlists. Group and/or individual therapy is provided at the client’s convenience, including on weekends or during the evening. Depending on the client’s needs, counselling over the telephone or Internet may also be provided, or the counsellor may travel to an appropriate location of the client’s choosing. Counselling services are delivered within a FeedBack Informed Treatment (FIT) model and produce outcomes that exceed international norms for counselling. An intensive day treatment program called "Discovery" is also offered, which provides day/evening/weekend group sessions and workshops held in the Lower Mainland.
