Bob Cabaniss, our founder, and many of our doctors and therapists are themselves recovered addicts. So we truly understand how to interpret and treat the signs of a gambling addiction. Our residential treatment team can help you determine whether the signs of a gambling addiction you are seeing constitute the complex psychiatric disorder known as compulsive gambling.
Signs of a Gambling Problem
The signs of gambling problems vary from individual to individual. But often they include using gambling as a way to escape depression, loss of job, or relationship. In addition, other signs include gambling with increased amounts of money, lying to hide gambling activity, and re-living past gambling winnings. Lastly, a person might experience irritability or anger when kept from gambling, gambling to recover losses or an inability to stop gambling. If you witness these signs and symptoms of a gambling addiction in yourself or a loved one, please call Williamsville Wellness.
