Gambling Addiction

At Rehubs, we offer a comprehensive approach to the treatment of gambling addiction, focusing on your well-being. Explore our online rehab program today.

Gambling addiction is when you can’t control your urge to gamble, leading to negative consequences. It’s like a powerful desire to keep betting, even when it harms your relationships, finances, or well-being.

This addiction isn’t about winning or losing; it’s about the thrill of risking large amounts of money. Just like any addiction, it can affect anyone. Support and understanding are key in helping you to break free from the cycle of gambling addiction.

You don’t have to deal with gambling addiction alone. If left untreated, gambling addiction can wreak havoc on your life, including your mental health. Problem gambling can impact your self-esteem, and cause stress and anxiety.

Our goal is to guide you toward a path of recovery, helping you regain control of your life and rebuild relationships that may have been strained by excessive gambling.


Is Your Gambling a Problem?

Gambling can not only affect your financial health but your mental well-being too. Understanding and recognising the signs of a gambling addiction is the first step towards regaining control of your life.

Here are some of the key signs you may have a gambling problem:

  • You worry about your in-person or online gambling habits
  • You lie to your friends and family about your gambling
  • You borrow or steal money to gamble
  • You’re experiencing bankruptcy/ legal problems
  • You spend most of your time on gambling sites or in betting shops
  • You use gambling to deal with unpleasant feelings
  • You gamble even if it is damaging your finances/ you can’t afford to
  • Your gambling habits are affecting your responsibilities


Have you found yourself unable to stop gambling, even when you desperately want to? Do you constantly chase losses, convinced that the next bet will be the big win that sets everything right? Are you neglecting your responsibilities, relationships, or your own well-being due to your gambling habits? If you resonate with these questions, it’s possible that you’re dealing with a gambling addiction.

At Rehubs, we understand the complexities of pathological gambling, and we’re here to provide the gambling support and gambling treatment you need to overcome it. You don’t have to deal with gambling addiction alone; our rehab program can help you turn over a new leaf and regain control of your life.


What Causes Gambling Addiction?

Gambling addiction, also known as compulsive gambling or gambling disorder, is a mental health condition characterised by an inability to control your gambling habits, despite the negative consequences.

Much like alcohol addiction or drug addiction, there is no single cause of gambling addiction. Instead, several factors can contribute to the development of a gambling disorder.

One of the key reasons people become addicted to gambling is the rush of excitement and euphoria you feel when you’re on a winning streak. This activates your brain’s reward system, leaving you wanting more. This can cause a spiral and begin a cycle of compulsive behaviour.

Additionally, unresolved personal issues such as stress, depression, or anxiety can drive people to use gambling as a coping mechanism. It can be a way to block out unpleasant feelings or sensations.

Having a relative or a parent with a gambling addiction could increase the risk of developing a gambling addiction. Likewise, being exposed to harmful gambling at an early age could increase the risk. This ties into the Social Learning Theory – that your behaviours are learned by those around you.

Having an addictive personality could also increase the risk of becoming a problem gambler. For example, being impulsive, competitive or easily bored.

At Rehubs, we understand the many different factors that contribute to gambling addiction, and our expert team is dedicated to addressing these issues with compassion and understanding.
