Gambling Treatment Center for Gambling Addiction


Oftentimes when we talk about addiction treatment, people first think of substance abuse treatment and how drug abuse can cause problems within relationships, career goals, and overall wellness. However, gambling addiction is another prevalent form of compulsion often associated with mental illness. Just like alcohol or drug addiction, gambling addiction problems are mental illnesses that often require treatment to overcome.

At Enlight Treatment Center, we offer addiction treatment services that cater directly to the challenges you are facing, including negative gambling behavior. If you or a loved one is struggling, our gambling addiction programs provide long-term healing for a brighter tomorrow.

What Defines a Gambling Problem?

Do you remember the thrill you got when you placed that first bet? Do you remember how good you felt when you won that first pot? Many compulsive gamblers know this is a feeling you could never top. Unfortunately, just as is the case with any addiction, the “high” of gambling is often overcome by negative side effects.

Gambling becomes a problem when compulsive gambling tendencies negatively impact family members, the overall health of the individual, or financial situations. These include job loss, bankruptcy, loss of relationships, poor physical and mental health, and more.

Keep in mind that gambling addiction is not only seen at casinos. In fact, many of those with addiction feel their compulsion most in regards to online gambling and associated games. When a compulsive behavior negatively impacts your daily life, seeking addiction treatment is the best course of action for understanding the core issue and pursuing lasting results.

Treatment Programs for Gambling Addiction

Treating a gambling addiction is much like treating an addiction to drugs and alcohol. In fact, our gambling treatment programs begin the same way as substance abuse programs: by admitting the problem and acknowledging the need for help. After an individual acknowledges their gambling disorder, the real work can begin treatment that addresses mental health issues associated with gambling addiction.

Mental Health Care for Your Gambling Disorder

Our rehab in Ventura County allows clients who are suffering to confront the root problems that have led to their addictions. This is a proven way to treat addictions in the long run and not just a band-aid approach to addiction recovery. We provide extensive mental health services that help individuals overcome problem gambling, including :
  • Behavior therapy
  • Support groups, including Gamblers Anonymous
  • Coping skills when temptations arise
  • Family therapy for relationship repair
  • And more

Gambling and Mental Health Disorders

For some individuals, a gambling disorder will accompany another mental health disorder, such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder. When this occurs, our team provides dual diagnosis treatment, which allows addressing mental health concerns alongside an addiction. Our team will work directly with you in order to determine whether or not this level of treatment and the types of therapy provided are beneficial to you and your recovery goals.
