Gamblers Program

An invitation from Nuno, co-founder of Life Beyond the Horizon Retreat

Dear Friend, through my One to One Counselling sessions I have helped thousands of people survive some of the hardest times of their lives. This silent killer causes untold devastation throughout the world and through my residential programs many more are being helped.

Historically, recovery has taken months but my educational program gives you back the freedom you were born with and can be achieved in a matter of weeks. By taking you away from your usual environment I give you the best opportunity to be whole again and the unique ‘In Natura’ environment of Life Beyond the Horizon Retreat enables you to grow, to experience the ‘path of freedom’ and help you move beyond your gambling addiction to experience true healing for a healthy, happy addiction-free life.

So leave behind the confines of your current life and come with me and take one breath at a time.

With love and gratitude

Nuno

Compulsive Gambler’s 3 S’s Treatment Program

The program: Symptom, Source and Solution

My innovative, educational and intensive 2 week residential program has been developed over time through the support of other therapists and psychologists from all over the world, specialists in the various fields of addictions and is designed to provide a holistic experience while living a healthy, balanced life.

Coming for treatment is part of a bigger journey

…and starts well before arriving…

…and has ongoing support after the successful treatment program!

Gambling is a way of escaping and masking your feelings therefore it is seen as a SYMPTOM

To be able to solve the problem we need to find its SOURCE or roots

Finally….once it is identified a SOLUTION can be found

So what happens when you enrol in our  3 ‘S’ Treatment program and start your Path to Recovery?

After you make initial contact and complete your Initial Application Form, trained staff will review your application, giving consideration  to your individual needs, helping you decide the best treatment plan/length of stay. Booking and travel information follows.

Then our program starts!

Our Pre-Care: The SYMPTOM

While you are waiting to attend the Retreat we will send you information and tools on HOW TO STOP GAMBLING IMMEDIATELY and we will give you a step by step formula on how to sort out any pressing issues that need dealing with immediately, like debt management.

There is also phone/Skype sessions available to get you ready for the journey!

…and that is your first step on the Path to Recovery!

Gamblers Program – The Path to Freedom

Gambling addiction is a serious problem to overcome on your own, but with our help, understanding and support YOU CAN DO THIS. But please remember the ONLY way you are going to stop is if you are ready to accept that you have a problem and you want to STOP!

At our Retreat we tackle the SOURCE

In our Holistic “In Natura” retreat Centre we treat the whole person — Mind, Body and Spirit — helping to rejuvenate, regain balance and harmony. Exploring your gambling addiction in greater depth we will address many of the underlying issues you have been struggling with for a long time.

While you are with us we will help you to find the SOURCE of the problem.

We help you do this by giving you a safe environment that is free from all your daily distractions, stresses and triggers. A place where you have the chance to think, to still the mind and start to breathe again, one breath at a time.

During your stay you will be encouraged to take part in all or some of the following:

If you are ready, come and talk to us, we can help Book your Path to Freedom

Please remember, those who once criticized you, will turn into your best support network.

Our After-care Plan: The SOLUTION

At the Retreat you explored your gambling addiction in great depth, addressing many of the underlying and related issues, now from the comfort of your home and in the arms of your family you can build on the foundations you started.

  • Gaining back the trust plan
  • Addressing financial problems
  • Work related issues
  • Career options

Continued success depends on maintaining all of the changes made at the retreat. Parts of the above aftercare plan is provided by email at no extra cost. However, if you require more intensive support after your retreat stay, including either counselling or skype sessions, family therapy or coaching, there are a range of options that we are able to provide. These packages are designed to suit the needs of the individual and their family network and fit around your daily schedule.
