GAME is an eight-session psycho-educational skill-based group designed to help clients to stop gambling and better manage their lives through counselling and group therapy. The topics covered in the sessions include:
Besides learning skills and strategies, members can also find support and help one another. Members benefit when they share honestly and openly about their struggles in recovery. While we encourage members to share, some members learn by just listening in the early phases, until they are ready to participate more actively. Our clients find GAME to be extremely helpful in connecting them with a recovering community that is both supportive and nurturing. They also find that the topics help them to stop gambling and reduce the likelihood of relapse.
In view of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have moved the Face-to-Face (F2F) GAME support group sessions online (GAME Online), to be conducted via Zoom platform. Like F2F GAME, GAME (Online) is eligible for NAMS patients only.
Timing: 7pm to 8pm (every Thursday, except eves of public holidays; Chinese New Year, Christmas and New Year, and public holidays).
We may resume F2F GAME in the future depending on the evolving COVID-19 situation.
