New Blog Post by A Forever Recovery Looks at How to Treat a Gambling Addiction

Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) December 23, 2013

Individuals who are struggling with a gambling addiction, as well as their friends and family members who are looking for insights on how they can provide meaningful support, can now read the latest blog post by A Forever Recovery, a leading addiction treatment center that has pioneered a moral reasoning approach to recovery that empowers each individual client to access the spiritual, cognitive, and fellowship support that they need

“Despite widespread evidence to the contrary, there are still many people in society – including addicts themselves – who refuse to acknowledge that gambling addiction is a real, severe problem that is on the same level as substance addiction,” commented A Forever Recovery’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “Unfortunately, one of the devastating consequences of this lack of awareness is that individuals and families don’t realize that treatment is available, and often more accessible than they imagine. We hope that this blog post will help more people understand this serious and alarmingly common addiction, and seek treatment now – rather than later.”

The blog post highlights key symptoms of a possible gambling addiction, which can include:

  • Having obsessive thoughts about gambling
  • Lying about one’s gambling behavior
  • Gambling instead of working or spending time with family
  • Feeling depressed when not gambling
  • Going into debt due to gambling

The blog post also discusses standard treatment components for gambling addiction recovery, which can include:

  • Standard psychotherapy (counseling)
  • Group therapy within the treatment facility
  • Medication (not used in all instances)
  • Follow-up counseling and therapy
  • Group therapy after treatment

“The bottom line is that gambling addiction has the potential to be incredibly destructive, and the fact that drugs or alcohol aren’t necessarily involved by no means makes it less serious of a problem,” concluded Per Wickstrom. “Anyone suffering from a gambling addiction should seek addiction treatment from qualified and caring health professionals.”
