Self-help treatment

The greatest and most important step in overcoming the addiction is accepting that you have a problem.

  • Seek help for underlying mood disorders: Some disorders such as stress, anxiety, depression and substance abuse can trigger problems with gambling. Even after battling gambling addiction, the problems will remain and it is therefore important to address them.
  • Lean healthier ways to relieve unpleasant feelings: To some people gambling is a way to soothe unpleasant emotions such as loneliness, stress and boredom. You can try healthier and effective ways of managing the emotions such as relaxation techniques. You should avoid environments and websites that will provide temptations.
  • Strengthen your support network: It is important to reach out to friends and family who will give you the support you need to overcome the addiction. You should surround yourself with people you are accountable to.
  • Join a support group: This is especially important because you get to meet and connect those who experiencing the same challenges. Here you can find encouragement and motivation.

Professional treatment

Seeking professional help and going through therapy can help you overcome and cope with your addiction for a lifetime. Some of the methods used include:

  • Inpatient treatment programs: These are recommended for people with severe gambling addiction. They cannot avoid gambling without constant support.
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT): This method focuses on modifying and changing the unhealthy gambling thoughts and behaviors such as false beliefs and rationalizations. CBT can also help you learn how to fight the urges to gamble and how to solve the work, financial and relationship troubles that have been brought about by the gambling addiction.
  • The Four Steps Program: This is a variation of CBT and it aims at changing your thoughts on gambling in four steps which are: re-label. Reattribute, refocus ad revalue.
  • Marriage and credit counseling: These aim at helping you progressively work through the specific relationship and financial problems due to the gambling problem.
