Problem gambling help for families

Problem gambling impacts individuals, sometimes dramatically changing their lives, but problem gambling affects family members and friends as well. If someone you care about is addicted to gambling, the anxiety and concern you feel about their gambling can become consuming. Living with the effects of someone else’s gambling can be emotionally, financially and socially devastating. That’s why, whether or not your loved one chooses to get help for their problem gambling, you should consider getting help for yourself. 

Group Discussion

Support designed for spouses, partners and loved ones of problem gamblers can help you answer these common questions: 

  • What is my role as the loved one of a compulsive gambler?

  • How can I be of the greatest help to someone who is still gambling?

  • How can I best live with the problem?

  • Should I stay or should I go?

  • How can I protect my finances?

  • How can I deal with my anger, fear and resentment?

  • Will I ever be able to trust the gambler again?
