Gambling Rehab

Common types of gambling

Compulsive gambling and gambling addiction are on the rise.  There are many reasons for this but we are now experiencing a growing demand for gambling rehab programmes here at The Providence Projects.

Gambling addictions can come in all shapes and sizes but the most common gambling addictions we see are:

  • FOBT machines – These are the machines in bookmakers on which most people play roulette, often referred to as the ‘crack cocaine’ of gambling
  • Card gambling – Mainly poker which is the most popular game which is played on-line, in casinos and in clubs. Most people play on line
  • Sports betting – Usually football, horse racing, greyhound or virtual racing. Bets for this are either place on line or in betting shops
  • Shares or Trading – Gambling on either exchange rates or share indexes often in the form of spread betting. Stakes here can be very high
  • Bingo – There has been a rise in the number of people compulsively playing bingo on line. These websites are general virtual amusement arcades
  • Lottery / Scratchcards – Although most people play the lottery quite innocently, there are those who develop compulsive behaviour spending £100’s every week on either lotter tickets or scratchcards.

Gambling Rehab Programme

Compulsive gambling generally results in the breakdown of family units, dishonesty, deceit and mistrust.  The gambler will often present well to the outside world but is often falling apart on the inside.

"An unassuming house in the heart of Boscombe where miracles happen. From my initial talk with Paul, the admission process with Jon and my induction with Darryl, I was treated with compassion, empathy and understanding. All the staff had been in the same position as me!...If you are looking for a wealth of experience and knowledge around addiction, a safe environment to turn your life around and a solid foundation for your ongoing recovery you will not be disappointed.”
"Today my husband Paul is 1 year clean and sober thanks to The Providence Projects, he has found himself again and is living the life he deserves. " A life beyond his wildest dreams "… He initially signed up for 1 month but soon realised he needed a further 2 months. Paul has been dedicated and followed the advice given to him. He would not be here today if he hadn't been to The Providence Projects. I cannot thank or praise the program and staff enough…”
"A very special place, with wonderful staff. 3 years on life is amazing. Thank you so much for everything you all did for me. Alcohol dependant and a chronic gambler the Provi gave me a platform to turn life around and that it has, meaningful relationships, wonderful friends and most importantly peace of mind. You told me good things would happen and they have - and continue to do so. Highly recommended..."
