Go part way up the page to a thread that started out being "It doesn't get any better than this?" The thread has wandered greatly but in the middle are some posts about Naltrexone and cutting. Naltrexone is used to block the high from drugs and alcohol so that the cravings aren't there anymore. My experience was that it worked quite well to reduce alcohol cravings.

The theory put forth above is that it could also block the high that some people get from cutting themselves. In your case it may work to block the gambling "highs" that your brother gets. It also works well in combination with Prozac as an augmentor for depression. It may be worth looking into.
