UK to open world's first women's gambling treatment center

World's first women's gambling treatment center to open in Midland in 2021. This decision was made by the UK authorities against the backdrop of new studies that showed a significant increase in the number of women suffering from gambling addiction.

According to the Gordon Moody Association, women affected by gambling need more complex treatment than representatives strong sex. According to preliminary information, the new center will provide such support under special conditions developed by scientists. Every year, 24 women will be able to undergo treatment here. It is worth noting that this initiative received its main funding thanks to the support of the mobile casino company InTouch Games Limited.

"Gambling is a hidden addiction, and even more hidden in it is the story of female players who are influenced by others," said Matthew Hickey, CEO of Gordon Moody.

He also added, “There is an absolute need to change this. COVID-19 has significantly affected the growth of gambling addicts. This is a real crisis that needs to be overcome with more experience and resources.”

It is important to add that in 2019, Gordon Moody Association analysts recorded an increase in the number of women by more than 100,000 people using the Gambling Therapy website. Last year, GambleAware, GamCare and Gambling Therapy reported that 30% of helpline calls came from the female population. 59% of them asked for help for their loved ones, and 41% needed treatment themselves.

Recall that Estoniawill launch a state program to combat problem gambling.
