Overcoming a Gambling Addiction

Gambling addiction, also known as pathological gambling or compulsive gambling, is a behavioral disorder characterized by an uncontrollable urge to gamble despite negative consequences and a growing negative impact on one's personal, financial, and social life.

Gambling addiction, also referred to as pathological gambling or compulsive gambling, is a recognized mental health disorder marked by an overwhelming urge to gamble excessively and impulsively. Individuals with gambling addiction often find it difficult to control their gambling behavior, leading to severe negative consequences, including financial losses, strained relationships, and emotional distress. The disorder can lead to a preoccupation with gambling, with affected individuals often planning their lives around it. Effective treatment for gambling addiction typically involves therapy, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), support groups, and, in some cases, medication to help individuals regain control over their impulses and address the underlying causes of their addiction. Early intervention is crucial to prevent further harm and to improve the quality of life for those struggling with gambling addiction.
