Gambling Addiction Treatment in Menorca

For a long time, gambling addiction was seen as a compulsive behavior, in other words, people with a gambling problem in Menorca were not addicted, but simply unable to exercise self-control over their impulse to gamble.1https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3858640/


It is only the most recent version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders2https://www.ncpgambling.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/DSM-5-Diagnostic-Criteria-Gambling-Disorder.pdf, DSM-5, that has finally recognized that gambling is an addictive activity, and that the addiction to gambling works in the same way as an addiction to drink or drugs.


Gambling addiction is a serious problem in Menorca and the National Council on Problem Gambling estimates there are approximately 95 million people worldwide who would meet the criteria for problem gambling, although only a small number in Menorca seek treatment. With gambling ever more readily available, especially on the internet, it’s possible that number will grow.


Gambling addiction in Menorca is very treatable. With commitment and the right support, an addict can overcome their addiction and lead a gambling-free life. REMEDY wellness has a dedicated Ludopathy expert, who works seamlessly with the treatment team to address pathological gambling and Ludomania either as a stand-alone issue or as part of a wider mental wellness program.


Do I have a gambling addiction?


Like any other addiction or disorder, gambling addiction in Menorca should be diagnosed by an appropriate professional. They can consider their patient’s history and behavior against the diagnostic criteria to determine if they have an addiction. However, like any addiction there are several signs that will indicate there is a problem, and possibly an addiction.


Many people in Menorca will gamble for pleasure and enjoyment without developing an addiction. And many addicts will pretend they choose to gamble, rather than gamble because they have a problem. To determine whether an addiction exists a diagnosis will look more towards to the behavior around gambling, rather than the gambling itself.

Do I need Gambling Addiction Treatment in Menorca


Indications that you or someone you care about has a gambling problem in Menorca might display feeling a need to gamble, especially in response to specific situations, like stress at work or a belief it’s necessary to relax. The effect of not being able to gamble will also be an indicator because addicts frequently have changes in mood, being irritable or depressed when they are unable to satisfy their addiction.


Gambling behaviors will also feature in a diagnosis. Problem gamblers in Menorca may be unable to stop once they have started, gambling more than they planned or betting to win back previous losses. They may also resort to debt or even theft to fund their gambling. Gambling addicts may also lie about and hide their behavior. Or prioritize gambling to the extent that other parts of their life, like their relationships or work, suffer.


Any of these signs suggest that a professional assessment and diagnosis might be beneficial.


  • Needs to gamble with increasing amounts of money in order to achieve the desired excitement
  • Is restless or irritable when attempting to cut down or stop gambling ion Menorca
  • Has made repeated unsuccessful efforts to control, cut back, or stop gambling in Menorca
  • Is often preoccupied with gambling (e.g., having persistent thoughts of reliving past gambling experiences, handicapping or planning the next venture, thinking of ways to get money with which to gamble)
  • Often gambles when feeling distressed (e.g., helpless, guilty, anxious, depressed).
  • After losing money gambling, often returns another day to get even (“chasing” one’s losses)
  • Lies to conceal the extent of involvement with gambling.
  • Has jeopardized or lost a significant relationship, job, or educational or career opportunity because of gambling.
  • Relies on others to provide money to relieve desperate financial situations caused by gambling.


Gambling addiction treatment in Menorca


Because addiction is a disease, it is the behavior hijacking the brain’s reward circuitry that causes the addiction. This addiction formation process is the same as a drug addiction, so gambling addiction treatment in Menorca follows much the same process as other addictions.


One key difference is that there is no need for detox because there are no drugs or substances used as part of the addiction. Despite this, residential gambling addiction treatment in Menorca or overseas may be the best option.


Although there is no detox, there will still be withdrawal as the brain seeks the rewards that gambling provided. This withdrawal can be challenging, and an inpatient rehab such as REMEDY Wellbeing, with dedicated Ludopathy experts will offer not just a safe environment where relapse isn’t possible, unlike being at home in Menorca where someone is surrounded by the usual triggers and access to gaming.


Treatment options for gambling therapy will largely be therapies. Although there are some medication options that can help, naltrexone, for example, can help in managing the ‘hit’ that addictive behaviors provide, helping prevent relapse.


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, is very effective for treating gambling addiction in Menorca. CBT is an active therapy, so rather than exploring the causes of addiction, it will help the patient work with the feelings that gambling generates. It might, for example, help identify a chain of actions that starts with a particular trigger and ends with placing a bet, then work out strategies to break that chain, by identifying the process and redirecting it.


Twelve-step programs are also common gambling addiction treatment in Menorca. These are peer support groups and will help not just in understanding and managing the gambling addiction but also in building a support network for the life-long recovery from addiction. Contact: Gamblers Anonymous


Why use rehab for gambling addiction treatment in Menorca


Rehab for a gambling addiction treatment in Menorca may seem an odd choice because there is no addictive substance like drugs or alcohol involved and, therefore, no detox. However, like any other addiction treatment, a residential rehab can offer a greater chance of success.


Starting treatment in residential treatment means that the triggers and temptations of the addiction at home in Menorca are removed. Although the goal of treatment is to return to life outside, where a recovering addict will inevitably see those triggers again, rehab can create a clean break. The addict can learn about their addiction and develop strategies to avoid a relapse without, at the same time, having to resist the triggers in their normal everyday life.


As well as providing a safe and secure environment free from triggers and temptation, rehab for gambling addiction treatment in Menorca is also a supportive environment, which makes success much more likely. The early stages of withdrawal are the hardest, and when the cravings for the addiction will be at their strongest. A 3am bout of sleepless anxiety at an addict’s home might result in a relapse with an online casino; in rehab there is 24-hour support available.3https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3004711/


Ludopathy rehab in Menorca can also offer support for more than just gambling addiction. Gambling addiction is frequently a co-occurring disorder, rates of drug and alcohol use are higher among gamblers, for example. And the mental effects of withdrawal can also create problems. Withdrawal can result in changes to the brain chemistry that might cause a return of a previous depression or create a first depression for the patient.


Although gambling addiction does not feature an addictive substance, it is an incredibly strong addiction, and one that causes significant issues in Menorca. It is also frequently complicated by co-occurring conditions that are related to the gambling addiction and may be exacerbated by the withdrawal process. The lack of a chemical dependency should not, therefore, be taken to mean that it doesn’t need a rehab stay. The power of gambling addiction means that, in fact, for many gamblers, residential treatment is their best option to become free from gambling.
