Gambling Addiction

Gambling addiction is possibly one of the most unrecognised addictions in the world yet it ruins thousands of people’s lives on a daily basis. The term ‘pathological gambler’ is used for the gambler who sees nothing wrong in what they are doing and cannot acknowledge that the gambling is affecting family and friends. Gambling in its purist form is as toxic and as life threatening as any drug.

Gambling Addiction Recovery Program

Twin Rivers offers a program that is centred on individual and group therapy which aims to help the client identify the attitudes and repeating patterns of gambling behaviour that have been in place. With support from their counsellor and encouragement from their peers, the client is given the opportunity to gain insight into their problem and identify the changes required to support their recovery and improve the quality of their life.
