Walking Away from your Gambling Addictions
Compulsive or pathological gambling can be related to a psychiatric or mental disorder. You may feel like you can stop at any time, but each time you end up returning to the dice or cards for another game. It seems harmless enough at first, but addictions to gambling can cause you to withdraw from your family and friends, cause you to lie to hide your addiction, or could lead to serious financial issues. In addition, you may feel forced to perform illegal acts in order to obtain more money for gambling in an attempt to win back the money you previously lost.
- The Harmony Group has a variety of gambling addiction treatments to help you move away from these urges which can take over your life.
- After assessing your level of addiction, we use a mix of therapy, education, support groups and problem management to help relieve you of these compulsions.
- We support gambling abstinence and will help you stay away from gaming for the duration of your treatment, as well as provide ways for you to remain clean on your own.
