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.

Treatment of gambling addiction in Kiev

Being in the power of addiction, a person loses the ability to make informed decisions, ceases to improve and strive for personal growth. This is typical for all types of addictions, so similar methods are used to treat them. One of the most effective and well-known all over the world is the “12 steps” method, which is used to treat not only gambling addiction, but also drug addiction, alcoholism.

Tens of thousands of people who have undergone treatment under the 12 Steps program have managed to regain their freedom. On its basis, a rehabilitation course was created, which is practiced in the private rehabilitation center “Transformation”, which carries out anonymous treatment of gambling addiction in Kiev. Unlike the notorious coding of gambling addiction, here, together with specialists, the clients of the rehabilitation center form a new system of values ​​and return to ordinary life, full of meaning and vivid impressions.

Getting rid of gambling addiction involves a whole series of activities aimed at spiritual and moral revival and personal growth of a person, including: group psychotherapy sessions, art therapy, sports and much more. We work with each client according to an individual program. After completing the course of treatment, addicts get the opportunity to participate in special camps, where they meet interesting people from the world of show business, athletes, which is a good prevention of relapse.

Treatment of gambling addiction in the center “Transformation” is carried out on a voluntary basis. In critical situations, compulsory treatment is possible (with the consent of loved ones), the primary goal of which is to motivate a person. If necessary, our specialists provide psychological assistance not only to addicts, but also to their relatives. For more information about the program, methods of combating gambling addiction, as well as how much the full course costs, the cost of individual services, call the hotline or on the official website.

Step one

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.

Step two

In his struggle with the disease, the patient can enlist the help of God, such as he sees him.

Step three

The patient learns to trust the power that leads him to recovery; he completely delegates control of his life to this power.

Step four

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.

Step five

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.

Step six

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.

Step seven

Based on the experience of other members of the group, patients begin to correct their own behavioral patterns, correcting their shortcomings.

Step eight

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.

Step nine

The patient apologizes and compensates for the damage to all people offended by him. Thus, he gets rid of remorse and forgives himself.

Step ten

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

Step eleven

The patient continues his path of reflection. This allows him to develop the spiritual essence of the addict, his moral sphere.

Step twelve

The patient uses the knowledge gained during the course to help himself and other victims of addiction. He uses these skills in all areas of his life, thus achieving inner harmony and happiness.

Before I turned to MAA for help, it seemed to me that my life had lost all meaning. I was on the verge of being overcome by feelings of despair. Thoughts about death. The drug has destroyed all areas of my life. Rehabilitation restored my confidence in myself. The team of the IAA, Dnipro region, in my opinion, performed a miracle. I completed the program and made the decision to learn and develop in the organization. The support of the MAA therapeutic community gives me the confidence and strength to move on and live soberly.

I am 18 years old. I have been drinking alcohol for 3 years, which is why all these years I got into unpleasant situations, after which I miraculously remained alive. Because of my use, I lost control of myself, relations with my family deteriorated intolerable. At one point, my father brought me to rehabilitation, for which I am now grateful to him after completing a full course of rehabilitation. I had enough time to think it over and put everything in its place in my delusions and inability to control my use and further life. This organization taught me a lot. First, I learned to live in sobriety, cry and laugh with real feelings, say “I love” my parents, appreciate many little things that I had not previously paid attention to, reconsidered my views on the world. MAA is changing my life in stages.
