Treatment of gambling addiction at Dr Vorobjev Clinic is the best solution for your problem.

Modern society has brought great technology development. The age of the Internet, mobile phones, laptops has facilitated the daily functioning of the man, but also brought some new concerns such as Internet addiction, shopaholism to light, while raising gambling to a higher level.

Namely, an increasing number of betting shops and casinos, as well as online betting, have become available to all, yet still insufficiently recognized as potential hazards. The result of their expansion has led to an increase in the number of people who seek for gambling addiction treatments.

Although it seems to be a modern form of addiction, due to an increased number of registered cases, gambling has existed since ancient times. The first traces of gambling were found in the Paleolithic era. In China, gambling houses were widespread in the first millennium BC, and animal fighting was quite common. Card games were developed in the 9th century, while the lottery became interesting to the Chinese in the following century. It is no wonder that many experts believe that China is the country from which the gambling problem spread to all other parts of the world.

Treatment of gambling addiction includes all generations

Gambling can be divided into three groups. Social gambling is recreational gambling, which leaves no consequences. Professional gambling is associated with skilled and disciplined persons to whom it is a job. Problem gambling affects the quality of life of both the individual and his family.

Unfortunately, statistics show that gambling addiction is a problem of all generations. Usually, young people met gambling the first time in adolescence only to develop addiction already in their twenties.

The causes of the problem are a combination of biological, psychological, and social factors. The genetic predisposition plays an important role, although gambling is thought to be a basically psychological problem. That is, the desire to reduce tension. It is caused by a trauma or an emotional event, such as depression, loneliness, lack of self-confidence, dissatisfaction, and even a sense of guilt.

Also, gambling addiction is more often developed in people whose parents have the same problem, just like when alcoholism is present in the family.

Just as the symptoms of heroin addiction are considered to be the most severe among those of illegal substances, gambling is considered to be the most severe form of non-chemical addiction, which only confirms the fact that professional treatment is necessary.

Changes in behavior lead to lying, distorted thinking, and denial. Consequently, family and romantic relationships are impaired, and the person loses his job.
