Gambling Intervention Program Trial - Final Evaluation Report

27 Oct 2017

The Gambling Intervention Program (GIP) Trial commenced on 1 July 2015, as a collaborative venture between the Office for Problem Gambling, the Courts Administration Authority and Gambling Help Services.

The Office of Crime Statistics and Research was engaged by the Office for Problem Gambling to evaluate the GIP trial to inform decision making about the viability of establishing it as an ongoing program within the Courts Administration Authority.

The evaluation found that the GIP trial had successfully met its objectives of reducing gambling urges and achieving non-custodial sentences for participants. This has resulted in the Courts Administration Authority continuing the program, which complements the suite of treatment intervention programs currently in operation within the Adelaide Magistrates Court.
