Are you currently receiving counselling services through the Program? Talk to your counsellor about whether the Discovery Program is a good fit for you.
Discovery is a multi-day group treatment program offered through the BC Responsible & Problem Gambling Program. Programs run between 2 and 5 days and curriculum is varied; programs include Discovery 101, Discovering Self, Understanding Self, Emotional Meaning of Money, Relationships, and Forgiveness & Letting Go.
Building skills useful in recovery, increasing self-awareness about one’s relationship with gambling and forming preferred visions for moving forward are key purposes of Discovery. All of this is done in a group setting where experiences and perspectives about gambling issues can be shared.
Discovery is offered throughout the year in the Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island. You don’t need to live on Vancouver Island or in the Lower Mainland in order to attend Discovery. Out-of-town participants are expected to make their own travel arrangements but in cases of financial need, subsidies may be available to assist with these costs. As with all BC Responsible & Problem Gambling Program Services, participation in Discovery is free.
A Discovery Intake Coordinator can provide further information about attendance, travel arrangements and requesting subsidy. Talk to your Program counsellor for more information and to be connected to the Discovery Intake Coordinator for Vancouver or Vancouver Island.
