Advancing Treatment and Prevention

We are your resource for problem gambling.

Recovery Resources is one of the few providers in Cuyahoga County to specialize in gambling services. Our gambling programs are made possible by funding from the Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services and the Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Board of Cuyahoga County. 


Gambling assessments can help determine if you or another has a gambling problem. Our trained clinicians will make recommendations to help break the cycle before it is too late. If help is needed, our certified gambling counselors are available to provide individual, couple, and/or family counseling. We can help problem gamblers and their loved ones learn the skills that are needed to address gambling addiction. Walk in assessments are available from 8am-2pm at our Lakewood and Pearl Road locations. Please bring a photo ID. All gambling treatment services are free of charge.
