Treatment of gambling addiction in Poltava

Gambling addiction is a pathological dependence on various games, very often gambling, the formation of which occurs at the psychological level. A modern type of gambling addiction is an addiction to computer games.

Gambling addiction manifests itself in the constant need to participate in games, as a result of which they begin to dominate other life values, displacing the need for communication, the desire for career growth, material well-being, etc. Gambling addiction has a chronic course, and one of its main symptoms is the addict’s inability to resist the temptation to start the game again.

Why gambling addiction occurs

This type of addiction can arise from a number of interrelated factors:

  • the presence of an incentive, both negative and positive: winning and losing;
  • mental characteristics of a particular person;
  • errors in thinking that do not allow us to correctly assess the probability of winning.

 The game is an opportunity to relive the bright moments associated with victory and defeat. Victory allows you to feel strong, gives confidence in your abilities, so you want to experience all this again and again. An equally strong influence on the formation of addiction can be exerted by watching movies, which very often contain stories about big winnings.

In schoolchildren and adolescents, an impetus to the formation of a gaming addiction can be a discussion among friends of computer games, ways of passing them. By the way, today not only children are keen on this, but adults. The virtual world of computer games gives users the illusion of superiority over others, a feeling of easy achievement of their goals, therefore it is more attractive than the real world.

Do not underestimate the mistakes of adults, which can be expressed in the form of too strict upbringing or insufficient control, attempts to instill in a child an excessive love of money, or too frequent discussion of options for easy enrichment.

Dependence is, first of all, a restriction of freedom. Regardless of its type, a person who is under the power of addiction loses the ability to make informed decisions, stops developing, and the circle of his interests becomes very limited.

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.

He was on the verge and did not know how to continue to live, but he wanted to get rid of this bad habit. Roman's mom and I found an ad for MAA Dnipro on the Internet and called there. The next day he was already at the center, where he began to undergo a rehabilitation program in the city of Dnipro. 30 months have passed, my husband is sober. At the moment, he works in the same center where he underwent rehabilitation. Now my husband is helping other addicts to fight the “disease”. Now we rejoice in every day we have lived, I have no more anxiety for my husband, for the future of our family. I know that everything will be fine now. I don't want to go back to the past.
