We are delighted to announce that our President, Dr Henrietta Bowden-Jones, was made an Officer of the British Empire (OBE) in the New Year’s Honours List. It is a fantastic testament to her hard work and commitment to Addiction treatment and research that she has been recognised for such an honour.

Dr Henrietta Bowden-Jones is a medical doctor and neuroscience researcher working as Consultant psychiatrist in Addictions. She has worked for over twenty years at CNWL and is the current President of the Medical Women’s Federation.

She is the Founder and Director of the National Problem Gambling Clinic. The clinic is the first and only NHS multidisciplinary treatment centre in the UK for the treatment of problem gamblers, it has been inundated by thousands of referrals since its opening in 2008 and holds an extensive national database on pathological gambling.

Reacting to the news, Dr Henrietta Bowden-Jones said: “I am truly delighted to have received this OBE for my work in Addiction treatment and research having dedicated my entire professional life to this disease.

About 100 million people in the world suffer from alcohol use disorders and about 27 million people are opioid dependent. Many more are experiencing harm form other drugs and from behavioural addictions.

I would like to dedicate this award to the children of addicted parents in recognition of all the suffering they are experiencing and of the harm it has caused them. We will continue fighting this illness until science leads us to be able to prevent it.

Furthermore, I would like to express my gratitude to this Government for finally taking seriously the issue of Gambling Disorder and the harm it causes not just to problem gamblers but to their spouses and children.”
