As is also true for traditional pathological gambling, it can be challenging to help someone who is addicted to online gambling. Until the person can see the damage that internet gambling is causing in his or her life, they may deny that their gambling habits need to be changed.
However, when the person admits to the problem (see The Gambling Addiction Test, The 20-Question Gambler's Anonymous Survey, or Check Your Gambling) gambling addiction treatment options may include:
Rehabilitation centers, traditionally offering intense gambling addiction treatment in an inpatient setting
Individual or group counselling focusing on overcoming compulsive gambling
Self-help groups such as Gamblers Anonymous
Online support groups for gambling addiction such as Gamtalk
Self-help gambling addiction treatment workbooks such as the free downloadable guide "Freedom from Problem Gambling"
