How do you know if you or someone close to you has a gambling problem? The following behaviors can signal the need for help.
It makes sense for anyone who is experiencing problems caused by gambling to seek professional help. Because of the convenience and availability of gambling, it is possible for people who have never gambled much in the past to develop severe gambling problems very quickly, even in middle age or older. Early intervention probably increases the chances for success in dealing with gambling problems, and avoiding greater harm being caused.
