Gambling addiction treatment in Kiev
Gambling addiction is a type of addiction in which a person is unable to resist the opportunity to take part in gambling. Recently, due to the widespread distribution of computer games and various gaming services on the Internet, it has become an epidemic. Like other types of addiction, it has a destructive effect on social ties, and has an extremely negative effect on a person’s desire to develop and self-actualize. For the treatment of gambling addiction, complex methods are used, which include drug therapy and psychocorrection.
How addiction to gambling is formed, where to get treatment for gambling addiction in Kiev, we will tell in this article.
How gambling addiction develops
Factors influencing the development of gambling addiction are:
- individual mental characteristics of a person;
- stimulation (negative and positive): win and lose;
- incorrect estimate of the probability of winning.
Winning is always a bright experience and unshakable faith in one’s own capabilities. You want to experience this incredible feeling over and over again, which makes a person take part in the game again, in the hope of another victory. An equally strong influence on the formation of addiction is exerted by cinematography, where stories about large winnings are often present. For schoolchildren and adolescents, this kind of addiction can be stimulated by banal discussions of ways to complete computer games (quests, strategies).
In addition, errors in upbringing, the encouragement of fantasies about easy and quick ways to earn money, and insufficient control from adults can affect the formation of addiction.

Acknowledging Our Powerlessness: The first step in the program for the addict is to admit that he is no longer in control of his own life. Understanding that we cannot save our lives on our own is the first step to our recovery.
In his struggle with the disease, the patient can enlist the help of God, such as he sees him.
The patient learns to trust the power that leads him to recovery; he completely delegates control of his life to this power.
The stage of careful introspection: the patient reveals his hidden fears and negative experiences to the group in order to understand the root cause of the development of the disease.
The patient accepts himself and his negative experience; he admits his mistakes not only to himself, but also to his loved ones and to God leading him.
The patient prepares for active actions aimed at getting rid of the disease. He understands that alcohol or drugs is not the cause of addiction. The reason lies in himself. You can defeat addiction only by changing yourself.
Based on the experience of other members of the group, patients begin to correct their own behavioral patterns, correcting their shortcomings.
The patient makes a list of the people he has harmed during his illness and prepares himself to apologize for the pain and make amends.
The patient apologizes and compensates for the damage to all people offended by him. Thus, he gets rid of remorse and forgives himself.
The patient develops the habit of constantly analyzing his actions and immediately admitting his mistakes. This is learning self-control and responsibility for his life
The patient continues his path of reflection. This allows him to develop the spiritual essence of the addict, his moral sphere.
