Community-based treatment programs are for individuals experiencing problems with alcohol, drugs and/or gambling and have sufficient community resources and supports in place. Separate programs are generally offered for alcohol/drug clients and gambling clients. For gambling clients who are unable to access an AFM service location, a telephone counselling service is available.
The program offers individual and group counselling sessions, lectures, film presentations and discussion groups. Programs are offered during the day and evening and are open to both men and women or on a gender-specific basis.
There are also services that provide educational information that will assist clients to realistically evaluate their gambling, alcohol and/or drug use, and the effect this is having on their lives and on the lives of those around them.
