Next of kin
A gambling habit is often at the expense of family, friends, leisure activities and other commitments. The gambling addict is often both physically and mentally absent.
Some people suspect unfaithfulness or drug problems. When they ask what is wrong, they are often given excuses or told lies. Many next of kin find themselves in a difficult situation, and it is often next of kin who demand that the gambler does something about his or her problem.
The Helpline 800 800 40 is a helpline where you as a next of kin can obtain advice and guidance about your situation. Here, you will meet professionals who can provide support in crises, and who are very knowledgeable about gambling problems, warning signs and treatment options. You will receive help and advice in English about the concrete situation you are facing. The Helpline has also had conversations where the caller was assisted by an interpreter.
