Gambling Addiction and Treatment

Gambling Addiction treatments we provide in Winnipeg and throughout Manitoba

Gambling addiction (compulsive gambling and pathological gambling) is a growing problem in Canada and the United States. Internet gambling, casinos, lotteries, VLT’s and the availability of bookies are easier, faster and more widespread.

Addictive gambling is not just about losing money. Gambling problems can affect a person’s whole life. Gambling is a problem when it gets in the way of work, school or other activities, harms the person’s mental or physical health, hurts the person financially, damages the person’s reputation and causes problems with family or friends.

People with a gambling addiction are found in all age groups, income groups, cultures and jobs. Some people develop gambling problems suddenly, others over many years.

Compulsive and Pathological gambling: For a small but significant number of people, gambling seriously harms all aspects of their lives. People with gambling problems this severe are unable to control the urge to gamble, despite the harm it causes. They are more likely to use gambling to escape from problems and to get relief from anxiety.
