What is Considered an online gambling addiction?

Gambling addiction, also known as compulsive gambling or gambling disorder, is a type of impulse-control disorder that continues to affect more families every year. Individuals with a gambling addiction have been seen to have little to no control when it comes to the impulse to gamble.

This cycle of behavior will lead to negative consequences that will seriously impact their physical, emotional, mental, and even financial health.

People who have a gambling addiction cannot just stop when they lose money. They are taken over by the feeling of needing to recover what they have lost. In many cases of gambling addiction, the person will have lost more than they thought, will become overcome with negative thoughts and emotions, and will do anything to recover the money.

“Unfortunately, it seems that we, as a society, have entered into a Faustian deal. Yes, we have these amazing handheld marvels of the digital age – tablets and smartphones – miraculous glowing devices that connect people throughout the globe and can literally access the sum of all human knowledge in the palm of our hand. But what is the price of all this future tech? The psyche and soul of an entire generation. The sad truth is that for the oh-so-satisfying ease, comfort and titillation of these jewels of the modern age, we’ve unwittingly thrown an entire generation under the virtual bus.”
-Dr. Kardaras

    Online Gambling Addiction Treatment Program at Omega Recovery

    Gambling is the focus for those addicted, even when they know and understand their gambling is hurting themselves and those around them. The addict is aware of the consequences of gambling, but the impulse is too strong that they cannot stop.

    Those with gambling addiction keep the game going and stakes high whether they are up, down, impoverished, extremely happy, or even depressed. No matter if the odds are against them, people with a gambling addiction play all the way.

    An estimated 750,000 of America’s youth — between the ages of 14 and 21 — are problem gamblers (they gamble more than intended or steal money to support gambling).

    Evidence-based Modalities for Online Gambling Addiction Treatment

    ” Problem gamblers often try to rationalize their behavior. Blaming others is one way to avoid taking responsibility for their actions, including what is needed to overcome the problem.”
