We are able to support people who:
- Are 18 years old and over
- Are registered with a GP in the East Midlands (Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire or Rutland) – see below for more information on registering with a GP
- Are experiencing current or recent problematic gambling, resulting in harm to themselves and/or to other people
- Are able to travel to the service in person or who can commit time for assessment and treatment remotely by telephone or video call (on Microsoft Teams)
- Consent to treatment and agree to engage with our team.
We may need to prioritise the support we provide. That is, we may have to focus on helping people in need of urgent treatment. We will do our very best to communicate clearly with you and be honest about how long you may have to wait to be seen by one of our team.
We will prioritise support to people who have additional needs or complexities including:
- A severe gambling disorder
- Mental health issues or substance misuse issues at the same time as problematic gambling
- A learning disability.
