Essentials: Gambling Addiction

The liberalisation of our gambling laws in 2005 has changed the landscape. Modern commercial gambling is suported by a £15bn industry that uses £1.5bn advertising and marketing budget. Once behind frosted glass, we now have a super casino in our pockets and in our homes with access 24/7. This new public health crisis remains largely hidden from view. It is important that health services can identify and respond to gambling problems, which are commonly co-morbid with other mental health and impulse control problems
