How to overcome gambling addiction?

My elder brother is obsessed to gambling. He has lost almost all his savings. His wife has left him because of his gambling but he is least bothered about it. He has started taking my money without my permission. He is getting death threats from the creditors and I don't know how to deal this situation.
I think everything will be fine once he stops his gambling. One of my friends said it would be better to take him to an addiction counseling centre in Vancouver ( http://www.canadadrugrehab.ca/drug-alcohol-treatment/outpatient-addiction-counselling/first-nations/ ) asap. I would be grateful if you could share your experience with counseling. Is it worth spending money? I want my brother to stop his addiction and lead a happy life. Any suggestions are highly appreciated. Thanks!!
