Help & Treatment
If you find yourself gaming or surfing the net excessively, seeking professional help early can help to reduce the harmful consequences and social & economic costs of problem gambling.
Screening - The aim of the initial session is to identify the presence of excessive gaming and/or problematic internet use problems and any negative consequences. Any other existing mental health conditions are screened for in order to provide a deeper understanding of the client.
Assessment - This is a comprehensive understanding of the severity and depth of the excessive gaming and problematic internet use in the context of the client life's situation. The individual's strengths, weaknesses, problems and needs are accounted in order to collaborate an effective solution. A discussion of potential risks is also integrated into the treatment planning.
Treatment Planning + Counselling - The treatment plan is tailored to the client's needs. Immediate and long-term goals are established. A discussion of WE CARE's holistic services is included in the treatment planning.
