Our Vanguard Center for Gambling Recovery is One of a Kind
The Center is a residential program solely for those suffering from problem gambling. Beginning with a comprehensive, realistic personal treatment plan, the Center offers men and women – ages 18 and older – the tools necessary to begin their process to recovery from gambling and discover some of the obstacles in their lives that may challenge long-term recovery.
Located in Granite Falls, it offers a safe, serene environment for individuals to rediscover life without gambling. Though Vanguard is an independent Center within Project Turnabout, patients share common areas and the resources of the entire facility including: central medical and detoxification services, nursing services, nutrition and fitness services – all while remaining an exclusive program, operating independent of all alcohol and drug recovery programming.
Personalized Treatment Program
Upon arrival, all Vanguard patients participate in a comprehensive assessment with our clinical team, involving physical and psychological assessments, gambling behavior, social, spiritual, nutritional, education and family histories.
