This program is designed to meet the needs of individuals who have
experienced difficulties in their lives due to gambling. The program
begins with an assessment of the client’s problem areas and personal
strengths. Participants are involved in individual services and address
specific issues in order to establish a lifestyle free of gambling.
The program philosophy is compatible with G.A.’s 12-steps. This
program is funded in part through support from the MN Department of
DWI, Diversion, Chemical Awareness and Crossroads
The PAR staff are involved in a number of additional programs that
focus on chemical health concerns including an eight hour DWI Clinic,
programs for young people including a Diversion Program and Chemical
Awareness, and Crossroads which is an individualized harm reduction
program for persons who have engaged in high risk behaviors. These programs
are offered to self-pay clients.
