Private Gambling Addiction Treatment, Newcastle

Newcastle has a thriving business and industry sector and is a successful consumer centre, however the North East of England has the 2nd highest levels of gambling in UK, behind Scotland. 26% of people from the North East gamble once a week. A 2016 report* found that 35% of gamblers in the North East hide their gambling from colleagues. Often known as a 'silent addiction' it is easier to hide gambling than it is alcohol or drug addiction.

The report also revealed that executives and managers are more likely to have gambled in the past year than non-executives.

What drives executives to gamble?

With career success comes increased challenges for executives in the form of pressure and stress at work, anxiety and depression and and peer pressure, all of which can lead to addiction. Gambling is often seen as a release from these pressures and a solution to problems, however when the inevitable financial difficulties begin to arise, gambling itself becomes the problem.

The Executive Rehab Guide aims to raise awareness about gambling, alcohol and drug problems, particularly among executives and professionals. Published by Castle Craig Hospital, we provide the information and tools needed to tackle addiction proactively and at the earliest possible stage.
