Dr. Abraham J. Twerski, rabbi, physician and psychiatrist of world renown brings his many decades of experience to bear in helping us deal with compulsive gambling for ourselves and our loved ones.
Like drug, alcohol and spouse abuse, we have been too slow in acknowledging the problem of compulsive gambling in the Jewish community!
It is crucial that we come to grips with the reality of the problem. Lives are being destroyed, families are being ruined and too few of us recognize compulsive gambling for the disease it is and for the disaster it spawns. Like undiagnosed cancer, compulsive gambling that is ignored or covered up can only progress. Once we accept that there is no immunity from it or from its terrible consequences, we can take steps to forestall the tragedy that will surely come!
Rabbi Twerski tells us that early detection can prevent catastrophe, but only if we are willing to face reality.
Finally - a book which explains compulsive gambling, tells you how it can be recognized and indicates what can be done about it. Real people. Real cases. Real help.
