Gambling Addiction Recovery Testimonials

Craig Carton Testimonial

Radio host, Craig Carton speaks about his experience with gambling addiction and how going to Algamus helped him realize that he had a true problem with gambling.

"I didn't take ownership of having a problem until I went to my first Algamus meeting. When each person went around the room and described what their game of choice was and how they processed it emotionally and mentally, it was like they stole those feelings out of my soul and out of my mouth. And it was only at that moment that I said, “wow, they are like me.” The amount of money is irrelevant, the game is irrelevant. All these people, these strangers from all across the country, took every word and every feeling away from me, almost like they read a script that I wrote, and it made me realize I have a problem. Now I’m blessed today. I have not wagered in any way, shape or form in over two years, and I’m proud of that."

— Craig Carton, Radio Personality at WFAN

"It has been just over five years since I spent 40 days at Algamus in Prescott. It was a very difficult time but made much simpler through the gentle coaxing, teachings, therapies and friendships provided and made through a unique understanding and shared experience of gambling addiction.

Algamus saved my life and my family. It has taken a few years to earn back the trust and respect I had lost, but I am blessed to be healthier and happier than I would have believed possible.

A special "Thank you" to Rick Benson and crew. I am humbled by the work you do.
