Affected family members: the National Problem Gambling Clinic (London) experience

First published: 10/05/2019 | Last updated: May 20th, 2019

The Central and North West London National Problem Gambling Clinic opened in 2008. It provides a service for people affected by problem gambling including family members and friends of those with the gambling problem. A range of questionnaires developed for those affected by someone else’s alcohol use and based on the Stress-Strain-Coping-Support model were adapted to use with family members affected by problem gambling problems. The measures were then administered to all family members who attended an initial appointment at the clinic between October 2010 and October 2011. The talk will present the initial findings with an emphasis on a full description of the sample (N = 48) and some comparison of the results to previous data from family members affected by other addiction problems.
