GambleAware funds a pilot effort to improve the effectiveness of NGTS

GambleAware has announced the outcome of a grant award procedure for a pilot project to expand the National Gambling Treatment Service’s residential treatment for gambling problems. 

It resulted in the charity commissioning Adferiad Recovery, which would collaborate with Gordon Moody to provide residential rehabilitation for adults who have a gambling issue or prolonged alcohol and substance use disorder.

GambleAware: Adferiad Recovery and Gordon Moody

According to GambleAware, the winning offer highlighted the two organizations’ continued relationship and showed shared principles, complementary talents, and expertise.

“Adferiad Recovery and Gordon Moody’s proposal recognized clear opportunities that can be fulfilled together,” said Anna Hargrave, a chief commissioning officer of GambleAware.

“We are glad to have given this funding to these two highly experienced organizations and view it as a critical step toward enhancing the capacity and efficacy of the National Gambling Treatment Service and ensuring that many more people receive the assistance and care they require.”

GambleAware adds that the suggested paradigm would allow individuals to direct their treatment and progress at their own pace, recognizing that recovery is not linear. Service users and their families and loved ones will be actively included in the care planning process to develop a person-centered, goal-oriented, and strengths-based system.

While each patient’s treatment will be unique, it will generally include medically supervised detoxification, acute mental health support/rehabilitation, and residential rehabilitation.

Moreover, engaging difficult-to-reach groups is lauded as a critical component of Adferiad Recovery and Gordon Moody’s proposal, with an emphasis on including underrepresented groups in treatment, lowering barriers to access, and proactively supporting GambleAware in bold engagement initiatives with members of ethnic minority communities, women, and younger people.
