Even Relatives Need Treatment

Living close to a person with a gambling addiction is extremely difficult. Oscillating between hope and despair. Constant worry. Frustration and anger. It's the everyday life of a struggling relative. But it's never too late to change your situation. Gambling issues are something each individual needs to take responsibility for themselves. And the impact you're exposed to as a relative needs to be managed with help. It's possible to regain a functional and healthy relationship. It's possible to break codependency. But to succeed, as a relative, you need help finding yourself again and learning to set healthy boundaries. It's never a family member's fault that someone has fallen into a gambling addiction. However, as a relative, you often play a significant and important role in the person's recovery.

A New Way of Living

Many relatives have undergone our treatment and have been able to completely change their lives.

What we couldn't do on our own, we can do together. So giving up and asking for help is the beginning of a new way of living. There are many benefits to putting yourself in the driver's seat instead of everything revolving around what the gambler does or doesn't do.

Previously my own well-being revolved solely around whether or not my son was gambling. With the tools I've received in treatment, it's no longer like that, which is incredibly relieving.
