Why Queensland Needs Gambling Help

Queensland is the second-largest state in Australia and its third-most populous. It is bordered by the Coral Sea and the Pacific Ocean. The state’s population of around 5.3 million people is concentrated on the coast, particularly around South East Queensland and especially in Brisbane, the capital and largest city.

The sheer size of Queensland gives it diverse geographical features and climate. The state is home to sandy beaches, tropical rainforests, mountain ranges, and coral reefs, including the world-famous Great Barrier Reef. 

Queensland also likes to gamble. Between 2020 and 2021, Queensland residents spent over 5.3 billion dollars gambling, according to a report by the Queensland Government Statistician’s Office. Given those figures, many people in Queensland will need to get help for a gambling problem.

Support Services for Those Affected by Gambling in Queensland

Because there are undoubtedly many people who are experiencing gambling addiction and need assistance with it, the state has many options for gamblers to seek the treatment that they need. Some of these options include:

The Queensland Government

The Queensland Government recognises that many citizens will require help with gambling addiction and offers free and confidential counselling for gamblers or their loved ones 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at the telephone number 1800 858 858.

Hills and Ranges Private

With an office located on Ann Street in Brisbane, this centre offers holistic treatment plans designed to support individuals recovering from addiction, allowing them to lead new lives.

Centacare North Queensland

This centre provides confidential care and support for gamblers and their families. It is funded by the Department of Communities, Housing, and Digital Economy, and there is no fee for its services.

Why Australians Are Coming to Bali For Gambling Help

Despite the many service providers for gambling addiction in Queensland, there are still many compelling reasons for Australians to come to Bali to seek treatment for their gambling problems. A few of these reasons include:


There are many reasons why many people would rather not let their struggle with gambling addiction become public knowledge. They may not want to face their family and friends. It also can’t be ignored that there are some jobs wherein an addiction of any sort may be seen as a liability and can cost someone professional opportunities.

Our guests can safeguard their privacy in two ways by coming to us in Bali for treatment. First, the distance between Bali and Australia can go a long way toward keeping someone’s problems away from prying eyes. Second, our high standard of privacy. There’s nothing more important to us than the security of our guests, and that includes their privacy.

Cost Efficiency

Gambling addiction can put a major strain on one’s finances, and it may put them in a position where they have to stretch every dollar they have. While it may seem counterintuitive, coming to Australia can be a better value proposition than seeking local treatment. Factoring in the high standard of care that comes with our service, our luxurious venue, and the cost of air travel, coming to us can be incredibly cost-effective.

We also help our clients access their superannuation early to help pay for the costs of addiction treatment.

Natural Beauty

Another compelling reason to come to Bali is the natural beauty. After all, Bali is renowned worldwide for its stunning beaches and lush forests. However, this natural beauty can do more than serve as the foundation of Bali’s tourism industry. 

By recovering while surrounded by Bali’s natural beauty, an individual can reconnect with nature, which can help them in their recovery.

How We Treat Problem Gambling in Bali

In Bali, we do everything in our power to comprehensively treat gambling addiction. We understand that the act of gambling itself is an intricate overlap of risk and reward and can go from a simple pastime to a compulsion that takes over someone’s life.

This is why we make sure that our inpatient facility offers a supportive environment wherein an individual is free from external triggers to pave the way for long-term recovery. Here’s an overview of what our treatment looks like:

Individual Counselling

A major facet of our treatment is individual counselling. In individual counselling, our guests are given a safe space to delve into their issues and experiences and learn coping mechanisms so they can handle their triggers in a healthy way.

A central part of our treatment for gambling addiction is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This therapeutic modality is concerned with identifying and addressing thought patterns that lead to negative emotions and self-destructive behaviours like gambling too much. CBT is a potent tool for breaking the destructive cycle of addiction.

Group Therapy

Another crucial part of our treatment program for gambling addiction is group therapy. Group therapy allows individuals to share their experiences and insights regarding their struggles. It also provides them with the opportunity to connect with one another and build a support system.

Co-Occurring Addiction Treatment

We find that many times, gambling addiction co-occurs alongside an addiction to drugs or alcohol. As such, our treatment plan integrates therapies and interventions in order to address both of these conditions to ensure that all underlying problems are addressed and that the recovery we want to provide is as comprehensive as possible.
