Welcome To Treatment First
March is Problem Gambling Awareness Month
During Problem Gambling Awareness Month, Iowans are encouraged to have the conversation about gambling with those they care about. “We know the majority of Iowans who gamble do so because it’s fun and they don’t have any problems as a result of it,” said Eric Preuss of the of the IDPH Office of Problem Gambling Treatment and Prevention. “But studies show 16 percent of adult Iowans are classified as ‘at risk’ gamblers - meaning they may have one or more symptoms of problem gambling.”
SASC is offering two Lunch & Learns to the public free of charge on March 10 and March 24. Click here for more information.
What is Treatment First?
Treatment First is a website that provides options for addiction treatment when you want an alternative to traditional office-based treatment.
Treatment First offers online distance treatment to clients in partnership with Recoveration.
Treatment First works as a communication tool between you and your SASC counselor. Treatment First is available 24 hours a day. You will have access to notes, documents, strategies and assignments that your counselor has built especially for you. These materials can be accessed by mobile phone or browser at any time, even when your counselor's office is closed.
Treatment First is available to SASC clients as an additional treatment option for those experiencing problems due to the use of alcohol, drugs, or problem gambling.
Treatment First was developed in 2008 by the SASC Addictions Treatment Program in Dubuque, Iowa.
