Understanding Gambling Addiction

Gambling addiction, also known as compulsive gambling or gambling disorder, is an impulse-control disorder where the urge to gamble becomes overwhelming despite negative consequences. Symptoms include the inability to resist gambling thoughts, increasing amounts of money wagered, restlessness or irritability when trying to stop, and jeopardizing significant relationships or career opportunities due to gambling.

This addiction does not discriminate; it can affect anyone regardless of age, gender, or socioeconomic status. It often stems from a combination of biological, genetic, and environmental factors. Recognizing the signs is the first step towards recovery.

Our Approach to Treatment

At Breathe Easy Therapy Services, we use a blend of evidence-based treatments tailored to each client’s needs, including:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Helps clients identify and challenge negative thought patterns and behaviors associated with gambling.

Motivational Interviewing: Encourages intrinsic motivation to change harmful gambling behaviors.

Our experienced therapists are deeply committed to understanding each individual’s unique situation and crafting a personalized treatment plan that addresses the root causes of their gambling addiction.
