Who we are
"The staff at Gordon Moody Association believed in me, until I believed in myself."
Gordon Moody Association is a registered charity with over 40 years experience in providing residential support and treatment for people who are severely addicted to gambling. We have two treatment centres, one in the West Midlands and the other on the Kent/London borders.
Our specialist approach and experience since 1971 has allowed us to develop treatment interventions that are purely gambling focused whilst also addressing the extremes of the associated behaviours often experienced by problem gamblers.
As a charity we are reliant on donations and grants for most of our services. Most of our funding for treatment is currently provided by the Responsible Gambling Trust and we also receive smaller donations from individuals and companies.
We provide advice, education and high quality innovative therapeutic support to problem gamblers and those affected by problem gambling, through residential, online and outreach services. We also run a unique service offering online support and advice to problem gamblers outside Great Britain.
Is your gambling out of control?
If you answer yes to three or more of these questions and you feel your life is out of control our residential treatment programme can help you to get your life back on track.
Do you spend too much money and/or time gambling?
Have you gambled away money needed to pay household bills?
Have you risked or lost a relationship because of your gambling?
Do you struggle to sleep because of your problems with gambling?
Do you gamble to try to win back losses?
Do you lie about how much you gamble?
We offer an intense level of support consisting of individual and group therapy and this, combined with the benefit of living in a therapeutic community, works for many people where other forms of intervention may not succeed. The residential programme is for a period of 12 weeks during which residents are helped to adopt new coping skills which help them to attain recovery and to integrate back into society, without the need to gamble.
New Service For Women Problem Gamblers
Gordon Moody Association announces a new intensive treatment programme to meet the needs of women who are struggling to overcome their problem gambling. This new service combines two short term residential retreats with 12 weekly therapy sessions delivered either online or face to face.
The first 3 night residential will include a series of therapeutic group workshops in a retreat style setting. During this time you will be able to disengage from your day to day life and focus on your own needs and issues. You will be supported to develop an understanding of why your gambling has become so problematic in a positive and supportive network with other women who are struggling with similar problems.
This will be followed by weekly one-to-one therapy sessions face to face or online for a period of 12 weeks. For an hour a week you will get support with day to day problems and engage in further pieces of work that will help you to overcome your problem gambling.
This short and intensive programme will conclude with a 2 night residential series of therapeutic workshops again in a retreat style setting in the Herefordshire countryside.
During this time you will be able to look at what you have learned, discuss any problems you have experienced during treatment, and create a personal plan that will enable a gambling free future.
