As complex as a gambling addiction may be, the good news is that effective and proven treatment is available.
Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) July 16, 2014
A Forever Recovery, an open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program that gets clients off to a great start and gives them a solid foundation in recovery they can believe in, has launched a new Gambling Addiction section of its website at http://aforeverrecovery.com/behavioral-addictions/gambling-addiction/.
The new section highlights:
- Various forms of gambling, including horse racing, casino gaming, lottery and scratch tickets and sports betting
- A scientific analysis of why gambling is addictive
- The 10 criteria for identifying a pathological gambler
- How gambling addiction can be helped
“When people hear the word addiction, they often tend to think of drug or alcohol abuse,” commented A Forever Recovery’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “However, gambling addiction is both very real, and very serious. And with the Internet now a basic staple of everyday life, there are more ways for people to place bets – and fuel their addiction – than ever before. What’s more, similar to drug and alcohol abuse, there is often a co-occurring disorder or problem present, which exacerbates the gambling addiction.”
Added Per Wickstrom: “However, as complex as a gambling addiction may be, the good news is that effective and proven treatment is available, which not only targets the root causes of a gambling addiction, but provides essential support to help recovered addicts live happy, fulfilling lives – without having to face the anxiety, dread and fear that has been their constant companion for years; perhaps decades.”
About A Forever Recovery
A Forever Recovery program is an open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program that gets clients off to a great start and gives them a solid foundation in recovery they can believe in. Not every treatment methodology works for every client. Some people are very receptive to 12-step principles, whereas others are more comfortable with faith-based treatment. Cognitive approaches have excellent success, whereas others thrive within a more holistic approach. A Forever Recovery allows clients to choose from a wide range of recovery methodologies, coupled with Moral Recognition Therapy (MRT), to achieve success rates unmatched in the addiction treatment industry. The bottom line is that there is no single therapeutic approach to recovery that works for everyone… until now.
