At the Long Island Center for Recovery (LICR), gambling addiction groups are held as therapy for those individuals faced with gambling addiction. The gambling addiction group and gambling relapse prevention lectures are available to any clients seeking therapy for gambling addiction. This represents all forms of addiction, from past or present gambling issues, as well as to clients who are interested in learning to cope with family members that have a gambling problem. The gambling addiction group reviews many different aspects of gambling including sports betting, racetrack and OTB betting, casinos, gaming, lottery and scratch-offs. The therapy for gambling addiction approaches gambling as a compulsive disorder, just as we view the use of alcohol and other substances. It is very common for substance use disorder and gambling to co-occur, which is why we offer comprehensive treatment for both disorders in our facility. Gambling can stimulate the brain’s reward system much like drugs or alcohol can, and we have found the potential to “switch addictions” to be very common for our clients even after achieving abstinence from substances.
However you or your loved one got to this point in gambling addiction, it’s important to know that you are not alone.
