Gambling Addiction?

Question by Answer Girl 2007: Gambling Addiction?
My boyfriend has a history of a bad gambling addiction. It started as a teenager and has continued into adulthood. He’s gone broke b/c of it, but is working very hard to get his life back together.

Other than his past addiction, he’s the perfect guy. He’s so nice, caring, really wants a family and all that.

However, I’m worried once he gets some money again, he’ll start gambling. I really want to break his addiction. We want to get engaged within the next 2 years.

I just don’t want a relationship with him if he starts gambling again. I want him to seek counseling or something.

What are some ways I can go about getting him some GOOD quality help?
I can’t imagine not being with him.
