Gambling addiction treatment

Excessive passion for gambling is a serious disease – a pathology of the emotional-volitional sphere. Gambling addiction destroys everything: career, family, relationships with relatives, loved ones, friends. The habitual life of a game-obsessed person is going downhill.

Treating gambling addiction is an urgent matter

 If 5-7 years ago, experts knew about the existence of gambling addiction only by hearsay, then with the popularity of computers, the situation has changed dramatically. The disease has become significantly “younger” and children are already suffering from it. Gambling addiction in adults and children is quite common today. Recently, another form of psychological disorder has appeared – Internet addiction, to which people of different ages, professions, material wealth, etc. are exposed. Because of this, treatment of gambling addiction is an urgent problem all over the world. Gambling addiction to computer games is a form of psychological addiction that requires an individual approach and long-term treatment. A person keen on the game, as a rule, goes through 4 stages of the development of the disease.

  1. Easy and big wins make the player want to make even bigger bets.
  2. Inevitable further losses force the player to borrow large sums of money, go into debt, pawn things in a pawnshop, quit his job, constantly lie to his loved ones.
  3. Despair leads to panic, blaming loved ones for all their troubles, and sometimes leaving the family, loss of reputation, committing illegal actions.
  4. In speed, the player feels hopelessness: he is filled with a feeling of fear, hopelessness, which is dulled by alcohol, there is a desire to commit suicide, symptoms of emotional exhaustion and insanity appear.

It is necessary to understand that gambling is a serious illness, but not a disease of the body, but of the mind.

Psychologists and rehabilitation specialists of the center will help you to win the final victory over addiction and fill your home with happiness and love.

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.

Roman has been married for three years. When our child was born, I found out that my husband is a drug addict. 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.
