Gambling Online Counselling in Cape Town, South Africa

A “compulsive, or pathological, problem gambler” are terms that have been used to describe someone who cannot resist his or her impulse to gamble. Gambling disorders can lead to serious personal, professional or social consequences if left untreated.

Compulsive gambling addiction is in no way a moral dilemma nor has it got to do with being weak, these are treatable conditions that have complex motivations that are usually based in some form of past or complex trauma.

Recovery Direct offers specialised care for gambling addictions on an inpatient or outpatient basis in a secure and discreet facility based in Cape Town.

Family Relationships

Compulsive gambling can have many consequences on financial resources and interpersonal relationships. More often than not, it becomes increasingly difficult for the person to find the support they need in order to actually recover in that the family is often connected to the behaviour and a central source of the shame. This is why it is so important to admit people struggling with severe gambling disorders into a treatment centre as the risk of suicide can be substantially higher than with so many other addiction based disorders.

Family therapy is often the best way to help and mediate these circumstances as the therapy progresses over time. Read more about family therapy here.
