Self Help

On 12 step programs

Hospitality House encourages clients to attend self help meetings and to fully embrace 12 Step programs. When clients earn their Phase 2, they are encouraged to attend outside self help meetings of their choice.

Hospitality House and the Center for Problem Gambling have combined efforts to treat clients who are addicted to gambling as well as drugs and alcohol. The Center for Problem Gambling is located at 650 Warren Street in Albany. The Center is seeking permission from OASAS to have their staff facilitate group therapy at Hospitality House.

Hospitality House staff facilitates the South Oaks Gambling Screen (SOGS) when indicated upon admission.


Our clients attend the following 12 step programs regularly:
  • Alcoholics Anonymous
  • Narcotics Anonymous
  • Gamblers Anonymous

Other programs may be considered on a case by case basis.
