Cigna Rehab and Compulsive Gambling Treatment

Diagnosing Compulsive Gambling

How do you tell the difference between a fun day at the races and a serious issue with compulsive gambling? The criteria required for a compulsive gambling diagnosis is still evolving, but the following symptoms and behaviors are strong indications of an underlying issue with gambling addiction:

  • The need to take bigger, bolder risks to receive the same pleasure or "high"
  • Preoccupation with gambling, including past and present experiences and future plans
  • Using gambling to escape feelings of sadness, guilt, or helplessness
  • Feeling regretful or anxious following an episode of compulsive gambling
  • Gambling so much it interferes with work, school, or family commitments
  • Going beyond set financial limits – "chasing losses"
  • Hiding or lying about the amount of time or money spent gambling
  • Borrowing or stealing money or pawning belongings to support gambling activity
  • Inability to stop or cut back on gambling

Gambling can spiral out of control the first time you place a bet or the effects can be cumulative, only causing a problem after months or years of gambling. Whatever your story, there is a Cigna compulsive gambling treatment center that holds the key to your recovery and a gambling-free future.

Cigna Compulsive Gambling Treatment

Not all insurance policies offer treatment specifically for compulsive gambling or gambling addiction, but you can still get help under the auspices of a mental health or behavioral disorder. Much like the treatment for sexual addiction or Internet addiction, compulsive gamblers undergo long-term therapy and counseling that helps them identify their triggers and learn new positive ways to cope with underlying issues like depression, anxiety, or impulse control.

Many compulsive gamblers opt for admission to a residential facility which gives them the opportunity for more intensive treatment away from real-world temptations. Patients whose personal or professional lives require more flexibility may benefit from outpatient programs that still offer support and counseling while the patient fulfills their other obligations. Your Cigna compulsive gambling treatment will be based on  your doctor's recommendation and tailored to your specific needs.

How Much Will My Recovery Cost?

Your Cigna compulsive gambling treatment may be covered in part or in full depending on your insurance policy and the type of facility you choose to be admitted to. Out-of-pocket costs can often be taken care of via a long-term payment plan, ensuring you get the treatment you need now with worrying about how the financial burden will affect you or your family. In the end, there is nothing more valuable than your sobriety.
