Pathological Gambling Addiction TREATMENT IN SWITZERLAND

Having a flutter on the horses, placing an online bet on a football match or getting rid of some loose change on a slot machine or hard-earned cash at a roulette table can be a bit of fun and enjoyment for millions around the world.

But when that fun mutates into something more serious and an addiction to pathological gambling starts to develop, the consequences can be devastating - on physical and mental health and also on loved ones and families.

Gambling addiction can completely dominate an individual’s life - and destroy relationships, businesses and lead to financial ruin, potentially suicide too.

A joint study by Yale University and the CT Council on Problem Gambling found that one in five gamblers who had called a helpline had previously attempted to kill themselves.

However, with the correct expert treatment, pathological gambling can be addressed and sufferers able to enjoy life in a healthy way once again.


The Kusnacht Practice is renowned for its absolute, dedicated attention and precision, honesty and transparency in a warm and empathetic environmen.

Its state-of-the-art facility combines Swiss standards of excellence, luxury and cutting edge, innovative technology with world-renowned medical expertise, compassion and sensitivity. Each and every patient is treated uniquely and privately in their own sumptuous, five-star residence and provided with the highest standards of professionalism, care and discretion.



A pathological gambler becomes addicted to the thrill of betting larger and larger amounts of money and greater risk-taking - often with catastrophic results.

It is a similar pattern of behaviour that we see with those addicted to alcohol or legal or illegal drugs - with many losing control, exhibiting compulsive behaviours and living in denial of their problems. Other addictions will commonly run hand-in-hand with pathological gambling - drugs and alcohol are often used as an emotional crutch to lean on to cope with the anxiety of living with gambling problems.

As you would expect, with so many people suffering from such issues, there have been great advances in treatments for pathological gambling, so your concerns can be addressed and resolved smoothly by discreet professionals with the highest level of evidence-based treatments at their experienced fingertips.


  • Attempting to control or stop gambling, but without success
  • Lying to family members or others to mask the extent of your gambling
  • Needing to gamble with increasing amounts of money to achieve the same thrill levels
  • Gambling to relieve feelings of helplessness, guilt, anxiety or depression and escape problems
  • Jeopardising or losing important relationships or work opportunities because of gambling
  • Having suicidal thoughts and tendencies

We will have successfully treated many just like yourself and we never judge. We are renowned for our discretion and privacy, creating a safe and protective, luxurious environment where we can concentrate on nothing more than making you better and freeing you from the shackles of pathological gambling.

The addiction can develop from a combination of psychological, genetic, physical and social causes. Such factors that can contribute to the underlying causes include childhood abuse and trauma. Therefore, addressing these issues can be complex and troublesome. Our treatment plans are unique and absolutely personalised but simply opening up about your problem to a discreet professional is a big first step - alongside other therapies, naturally.

We will organise everything for you and with no detail overlooked. We are here for you and there is nothing to be afraid of, so take the step and with our warmth and sensitivity we can liberate you.

“It started innocently enough or so I thought and then I just could not stop. That’s until I picked up the phone and called The Kusnacht Practice. Now I’m free from gambling and back in the arms of those who love me.”
