WHAT IS GAMBLING ADDICTION
& PROBLEM GAMBLING?

Gambling sometimes causes harm in a person’s life. If your gambling causes you significant harm, and despite that harm, you continue to gamble, then you have a problem. People label this gambling problem as an addiction.

Oftentimes, gambling problems are stigmatized as a failure of self-control, which is not the case. Efforts to stop or reduce gambling can be difficult, despite continued harm or financial distress. For this reason, The Gambling Clinic in Tennessee offers help to those experiencing harm from gambling.

Problem gambling affects hundreds of thousands of people in Tennessee. Gambling addiction can manifest itself in many ways, including increased preoccupation with gambling activities, difficulty or distress when cutting back or stopping, gambling to avoid difficult emotions, and harm to your finances, relationships, work, or overall well-being.

Over 250,000 Tennesseans experience gambling disorder symptoms.

Each person with a gambling problem will negatively impact six other people.

90% of individuals with a gambling problem never seek treatment.
