National Gambling Treatment Service








GamCare is part of the National Gambling Treatment Service.

The National Gambling Treatment Service is a network of organisations working together to provide confidential treatment and support for anyone experiencing gambling-related harms, free to access across England Scotland and Wales.

Wherever someone makes contact throughout this network these providers work alongside each other through referral pathways to deliver the most appropriate package of care for individuals experiencing difficulties with gambling, and for those who are impacted by someone else’s gambling.

The National Gambling Helpline is operated by GamCare and offers:

  • Telephone and live chat support – it is the easiest and quickest way for most people to connect with the service(s) or support that can best help them. The HelpLine is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year. It can provide brief interventions and make referrals into other treatment options across the network.
  • GamCare also offers a moderated online Forum and daily online group chatrooms to enable those affected by gambling problems to connect with others in similar situations, share their experience and support one another.

GamCare and its partner network offer:

  • Online treatment supported by regular contact with a therapist, which can be accessed at a time and place convenient for the client over the course of eight weeks.
  • One-to-one face-to-face, online and telephone therapeutic support and treatment for people with gambling problems as well as family and friends who are impacted by gambling.
  • Group based Gambling Recovery Courses delivered face-to-face or online for between six to eight weeks.

Gordon Moody Association offers:

  • Residential Treatment Centres – two unique specialist centres, providing an intensive residential treatment programme for men with a gambling addiction.
  • Recovery Housing – specialist relapse prevention housing for those who have completed the treatment programmes requiring additional recovery support.
  • Retreat & Counselling Programme – retreat programmes for women-only-cohorts and men-only-cohorts which combine short residential stays with at-home counselling support.
