Gambling Addiction

Muskingum Behavioral Health offers many beneficial services alongside a healing and supportive environment of rehabilitation specialists. If you think you’re in need of help, call (740) 454-1266 and schedule a free consultation today.

What is Gambling Addiction?

Gambling addiction often goes unnoticed until it begins to put a strain on a person’s everyday life. Gambling addiction is an impulse-control disorder. Men and women who suffer from a gambling addiction cannot exercise impulse control, and they will continue gambling despite the consequences, whether it is a gain or loss. Even without losing total control gambling can still be a disruptive behavior. Common signs of gambling addiction are gambling in secret, a lack of control over money, gambling when you don’t possess the funds and stashing money aside.

What are the Causes and Effects of Gambling?

Gambling can stem from a variety of reasons and can affect your life in many ways. Common reasons for gambling include the desire for excitement, the need for socialization, to escape from unpleasant thoughts and feelings, to resolve money issues, or to simply relax. Although seemingly reasonable and harmless, gambling can grow to become a nasty habit, affecting you financially, socially, and mentally as you become more devoted to feeding your addiction. Men and women throughout Washington facing gambling addiction may find they alienate their loved ones, are in debt, steal, or feel they can’t stop without additional help and guidance.
