Ben’s long term gambling addiction led to a breakdown in family relationships. Ben was living in halfway house accommodation and was referred to the Foundation after receiving treatment for his gambling disorder. Ben has struggled, not being in work and living a long way from his children, leaving him feeling isolated and lacking a sense of purpose or clear future direction.
The Foundation’s Programme has re-kindled Ben’s love of sport and the outdoors. We have helped him to find a more positive mind set to tackle life’s challenges, including securing new housing. Ben’s mentor Mark has helped him to re-focus on his education and he has recently been accepted on a university course.
Ben has been using the tools and skills from our Programme to re-build his resilience and self-belief. With his mentor’s support, Ben now feels able to propel his life forward and achieve his goals. He is slowly re-building his family relationships and hopes to secure a job helping others, with the aid of his degree.
