Gambling Addiction Treatment

Gambling addiction, also called compulsive gambling or gambling disorder, is the uncontrollable urge to keep gambling despite the toll it takes on your life. Like any addiction, people can lose control of their gambling behaviour. The need to feel ‘high’ can lead them to gamble more money than they want to or can afford to. This process can result in destroyed relationships, grave financial loss and difficult feelings such as shame, guilt or despair.

Symptoms Of A Gambling Addiction:

Gambling stimulates the brain’s reward system and releases dopamine in a very similar manner to drugs or alcohol. It is a progressive addiction, meaning the user will develop a tolerance and continually need more and more to get a ‘fix’ which means needing to take bigger risks and receive greater wins.

Gambling addiction can lead to symptoms of withdrawal when separated from the thrill, much like an individual with a substance abuse dependency struggles when separated from their drug of choice.

  • Finding yourself preoccupied with gambling, constantly planning when and how to gamble and fantasising about gambling
  • The urge to continually increase the amount of money you gamble to experience a high
  • Feeling anxious, irritable, or losing sleep when you try to stop gambling
  • Gambling to escape difficult emotions such as guilt, anxiety or stress
  • Gambling in secret or minimising the extent of your gambling to loved ones

Why Choose Sanctum For Gambling Addiction Recovery?

Deciding to go to a rehab or clinic for gambling addiction is never an easy decision. At Sanctum, our gambling addiction treatment programme is built upon our pillars of harm-reduction, addressing psychological and physical imbalances and providing you with the specific psychotherapeutic treatment you need.

We believe that working with individuals in an effective, non-judgemental manner in surroundings where they feel comfortable is key for successful treatment.



Our carefully selected multi-disciplinary team of experts understand the unique set of circumstances that our clients face.

Our discreet, expert professionals provide our clients with a wealth of clinical services from psychiatry and psychology to nutritional assessments, personal training, and 24 hour nursing care.

Continuity is a key part of what we do: we ensure you have a programme designed for life.



Our ultra-personalised approach ensures 100% attention on you. We work with one client at a time providing the scope, space, and flexibility to truly focus on your specific needs.

We understand that there is often a trauma that underpins a dependence and that addiction often functions as a coping mechanism to handle pain, fear or stress. Whether the catalyst for adverse mental health is a life event, social stressors, sudden wealth, bereavement or divorce, we will competently navigate each client through the complex and sometimes dysfunctional dynamics that wealth, fame and power can elicit.



All too often we hear of doctors employing a “one size fits all approach”: hypothesising what the problem is and trialling numerous different methods of treatment, often without success. At Sanctum we do things differently. We use an evidence-based approach founded on data, which ensures precision from the very beginning.
