IS he is indeed such a very severe problam gambler as you describe, then he needs to see a proper senior psychologist using CBT or something similar, to get this under control, and some meds also help to reduce such impulsive behaviours. Make sure that NOBODY sends him any money, and discuss his problem with the Responsible Gambling Program at one of the casinos, which could even arange to have him banned ( if that is how he gambles ). I don't know of any other clinic as such that specializes in this problem, but most experienced shrinks ought to be able to help.
I don't understand why your doc wouldn't refer him to a clinic with a special interest in thsi problem, though perhaps the doc meant that your husband couldn't be treated compulsorily, and would have to want to stop and to accept and work with the help provided.
