Certified Gambling Addiction Coach

Internationally Certified Gambling Addiction Coach (ICGAC)

Our comprehensive Professional Gambling Addiction Coach Training and Certification Program will teach you how to coach clients with gambling and gaming issues that are impacting their lives in a negative manner. Gambling and Gaming issues can occur in many forms including: visiting casinos, online betting, dog & horse races, underground fighting, gambling apps, sports betting, lottery tickets and more. While gambling may be enjoyed by some individuals, problem and even compulsive gambling can become an issue if left untreated. This course will certify and qualify you to become a Gambling Addiction Coach. 

Problem gambling, or ludomania, is an urge to continuously gamble despite harmful negative consequences or a willful desire to stop. This can lead to financial ruin, divorce, job loss, even drug and alcohol addiction and homelessness if it is untreated. Gambling and online gaming are defined as  process addictions that deal with compulsory behavior. As a Certified Gambling Addiction Coach you will learn how to spot the problem behaviors and offer solutions to correct the impulses at a core level.  

Gambling addiction is considered a process addiction and is treated very differently than drug and alcohol addiction. This certification is a great add on to a recovery coach certification, life coach certification, or an any addiction counselor training  class because it delves deep into the Neurobiology of the brain along with the social side of addiction. Coping skills, impulse control, the addictive cycle, learning styles and even goal setting will be covered. Legal issues and ethics are included in this course. 

NOTE: There are NO prerequisites to this course.  Also included is  Relapse Prevention Training, an ethics class, and 10 hours of master coach supervision. We do offer Job Board, Networking, and Business/Private Practice assistance. We also hire from within once you are trained, certified, insured, and bonded.

Frequently Asked Questions About Gambling Coaching

Not everyone will, but if you are just coming out of a residential program or our Sober on Demand concierge coaching, you can likely benefit greatly from having one. If you attend a high-stress event, like a wedding, job duty, or other event, you should have a sober buddy to go with you for support and guidance.

Sober companions are certified, bonded, insured, and long-term sober individuals who can offer the right support for those looking to get and stay clean. They are available as a live in at your residence, or just to accompany you to events, work, gym, grocery, meetings, outings, and other high-risk situations. They can help with mental health issues like ADD, depression, eating disorders and various types of addiction: drug addiction, alcohol addiction, food addiction and sex addiction.

Your therapist serves as your guide in your journey, helping you uncover truths about your addiction and develop the skills you need to stay clean. A sober companion is someone who supports the work you do with your therapist by accompanying you through life outside of therapy.

You should be certified as a sober companion, bonded, and insured. You should also have at least five years of sobriety under your belt before you take on clients. You can get your certification through The Addictions Academy.
