Professor Colin O’Gara is one of Ireland’s leading specialists in the field of addiction treatment and, in his role as a consultant psychiatrist at St John of God Hospital, has seen at first hand the immense damage caused by problem gambling, both to individuals and their families.

Gambling Addiction in Ireland is an invaluable introduction to a problem often overlooked or downplayed by policymakers, and is essential reading for individuals with addiction and their families, as well as those who work in the area of regulation. In its pages, individuals and families will find a single source of information relating to gambling addiction and treatment in an Irish context. Written in an accessible and pragmatic fashion, it explores the causes of problem gambling, its consequences for individuals, families and society, and the ways that problem gamblers can access treatment and rebuild their lives.

Including real-world case studies and practical self-assessment tests, Gambling Addiction in Ireland is a compassionate, reassuring and immensely practical book that is an essential companion for those on the road to recovery and those taking their first tentative steps.
