Individuals

Many people gamble without any problems. But, for some, gambling can create disruptions and damage to major areas of a person's life, including finances, emotional health, physical health, family and other social relationships, work or school. Problem gambling can look differently for many individuals.

Between 6 and 10 million U.S. adults per year from all walks of life experience negative effects from their gambling. Problem gambling is not defined by the amount of money lost or how often someone gambles. People who gamble problematically cannot control their gambling, and it often interferes with their relationships, finances, and work. At The Gambling Clinic, our goal is to help people use their personal strengths and resources to change their gambling behavior.
