Gambling Support

Are you concerned about gambling?

Many people find themselves unable to explain why they continue to gamble despite the problems it causes in their day-to-day lives.

In our experience, even though winning money may have attracted you at first, most people who have a gambling problem are using gambling as an opportunity to escape from other problems or pressures in their lives – problems at home or at work, boredom, loneliness or anxiety. Understanding what role gambling is playing in your life can be an important first step in beating the problem.
