Gambling Disorder: Family Impact & Recovery

Most people who suffer from gambling related issues slowly lose control of how much time and money they spend engaging in the activity. This inability to stick to limits can lead to financial issues, as well as a host of other problems. Many times, as the problem intensifies, other areas of the person’s life will be negatively impacted – this often includes families.

The impact of problem gambling on family members can be devastating – in addition to financial problems that often accompany this disorder, family members often forced to deal with other physical & emotional issues, such as lies, betrayal, anger, health problems, and in many cases, abuse.

This training will focus on the family dynamic, how they are impacted, and most importantly, the key role that they can play in the recovery process.
