Problem gambling is gambling behavior that causes disruptions in any major area of life: psychological, physical, social or vocational. The term “Problem Gambling” includes, but is not limited to, the condition known as “Pathological”, or “Compulsive” Gambling, a progressive addiction characterized by increasing preoccupation with gambling, a need to bet more money more frequently, tenseness or irritability when attempting to stop, “chasing” losses, and loss of control manifested by continuation of the gambling behavior in spite of mounting, serious, negative outcomes.
Those who participate in gambling to an unmanageable degree seldom recover without professional assistance. Our treatment center provides that assistance. Work with Algamus for gambling addiction treatment to get the professional help you deserve.
