Not sure how or why gambling is affecting you?
If you need help figuring out how and why gambling is having an impact on your life, you can visit our ‘What are gambling harms’ page.
What does treatment look like?
If you want to find out more about how treatment works, here’s a step-by-step breakdown of the treatment process.
Getting ready for change
While you are waiting to start treatment or just thinking about whether you need support, you might find it helpful to prepare. We realise that it can be a big step, so we created the ‘Preparing for change’ page to help you.
How and where to get help
Asking for help can be tough, especially if you’ve tried before and not received the support you needed. But remember, asking for help is a sign of strength and you are not alone.
Some services also support those close to people with a gambling addiction, such as family, partners, and carers. These specialists will talk to you about the treatment options that are right for you and make sure you get the support you need.
Free and confidential support is available from NHS specialists.
