No, all of Statewide’s services are free. You do not need a medicare card or referral for our service.
You can get face to face therapy at any of our two offices across Adelaide, these include Bedford Park (Flinders Medical Centre) and Elizabeth (GP+ Elizabeth). We also offer a voluntary inpatient program at the Flinders Medical Centre.
Once we receive your referral we will try our very best to offer you an apt with one of our therapists within two weeks.
For the face to face high intensity program we recommend twelve face to face weekly therapy sessions however, we have found that some people show significant improvement or full recovery within four to five sessions. The number of sessions varies from person to person.
Programs commence with a 90 minute initial assessment/screening. Sessions thereafter are approximately one hour in length.
Statewide has no religious affiliations. People who are religious and who are not religious participate in our program.
We also offer help to families and significant others of people with gambling problems. You can call us to make an appointment to see one of our health professionals or to find out about the ways you can help.
When you conquer the uncontrollable urge to gamble, you can determine the extent to which you gamble if you still want to. Most people find they do not want to risk falling back into uncontrolled gambling again.
No, the treatment we provide is one to one.
Chase your dreams, not your losses
