Compulsive Gambling Addiction & Recovery: A New Approach

We are grateful to the nine members of the ABC/Algamus Recovery Center in Prescott, Az. who are featured in this five hour/ three disc dvd set. They teach us much about recovering compulsive gamblers as they are to themselves. Each well-spoken exemplar honestly and accurately reports the inner structure of their own individual thoughts, feelings, and agendas as they impact their type’s recovery from compulsive gambling. The compelling self-reports of each of the nine individuals interviewed by Helen successfully challenges conventional treatment modalities.
