Abstract: The phenomenon of family violence associated with addictions in general, and with gambling in particular, is analyzed by the medical model in North America as being a disorder of impulsion, pathology or a disease. This approach, which permits, socially and legally, to label the gambler as suffering from a disease or pathology has certain consequences for the individual, his family members and the society. From a sociological and systemic perspective, this article attempts to identify some markers in these family dynamics with gambling and family violence issues.
