Gambling Addiction

gambleGambling addictions can tear families apart. We’ve unfortunately seen it happen. If you are reading this, we hope that you pick up the phone and call us right now. It’s not too late to get control of your life again and not feel consumed and overpowered by the wins and losses of gambling.

Every gambler thinks that all they need is “one big win” before they can quit, but unfortunately that is how serious financial problems develop. Usually, gamblers are embarrassed and don’t want their loved ones to find out they are in too deep, over their heads, and that they may have spent the next month’s mortgage, rent, and/or food money on gambling.

At Leyden, you are welcome here, free of judgment and lectures. We will work to help you get your life back by identifying the root of your gambling addiction, why you started and what you were trying to escape from, and most importantly how to move on from this and clean up your life.

Signs You May Be Addicted to Gambling:

  • You can’t stop gambling
  • Gambling to “escape” your problems and reality
  • Trying to win back money lost on gambling
  • You can’t stop thinking about gambling
  • You lie and hide your addiction from family and friends
  • You are in serious debt from gambling
  • Becoming a recluse
