Gambling addiction is a very serious form of psychological illness.
In this situation, a person can’t control his passion for gambling completely or partially. In a neglected state it is difficult to treat. Sometimes it can cause side disorders: psychosis, nervous breakdowns, insomnia, depression, etc.
People with these disorders may need qualified help from professionals. The sooner the symptoms of this illness can be identified, the easier the treatment processes will be. If you feel that you can’t stop playing, you should apply for medical help urgently.
Psychological support is provided by the following organizations:
- Gamblers Anonymous
- Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)
- The National Council on Problem Gambling
