APS Healthcare Rehab and Compulsive Gambling Treatment

When the Fun Stops

Placing the occasional bet or trying your luck at the lottery can be exhilarating, but when a pleasant afternoon at the sports book turns into an uncontrollable compulsion the results can be disastrous. As many as 3 percent of Americans suffer from a gambling addiction, exhibiting symptoms and signs such as:

  • The need to take increasingly large gambling risks
  • A preoccupation with gambling
  • A need to relive past gambling experiences
  • Using gambling to escape from real-world problems or to suppress feelings of guilt, helplessness, or depression
  • Lying about or hiding gambling habits
  • Gambling habits interfering with ability to work, study, or participate in normal family life
  • Overwhelming feelings of guilt or regret relating to gambling
  • Borrowing or stealing in order to place or cover bets
  • Inability to stop or cut back on gambling

Much like alcohol or drug addiction, gambling addiction can be a problem from the very first bet but it can also have a cumulative effect, becoming more and more problematic over time. Committing to APS Healthcare rehab to treat your compulsive gambling is also a commitment to better health, a better future, and a better life overall.

Treating Your Gambling Addiction

Depending on your coverage, your APS Healthcare compulsive gambling treatment plan may encompass a variety of care options in a number of differing settings, including impatient and outpatient rehab, detox centers counseling, transitional living, non 12-step programs, and other continuing care options. Most effective treatment regimens also address issues that may be contributing to or augmenting the primary addictive behavior. In the case of a gambling addiction, some medications used to mitigate symptoms of restless leg syndrome or Parkinson's disease can lower inhibitions or impair judgment, and manic episodes associated with bipolar disorder can play a part in compulsive gambling as well. Other risk factors include:

  • schizophrenia
  • mood disorders
  • antisocial personality disorder
  • alcohol addiction
  • cocaine addiction

By addressing all aspects of a patient's mental and physical health, the patient's outlook for recovery following their APS Healthcare compulsive gambling treatment is even more promising.

The Cost of Comprehensive APS Healthcare Compulsive Gambling Treatment

Not every insurance company offers comprehensive coverage to treat gambling addiction, but some policies incorporate it under the umbrella of mental health services. Our experienced insurance benefits experts at The Fix can help you navigate your coverage to find the best treatment facilities and medical professionals for a comprehensive recovery and a brighter future.
