COBRA Rehab and Compulsive Gambling Treatment

If you're looking for information on COBRA compulsive gambling treatment, it's likely that you or a loved one is experiencing issues with compulsive gambling. While many people assume that addiction is limited to tangible substances like alcohol, street drugs, or incorrectly used prescription medication, certain behaviors can be just as intoxicating as cocaine, crystal meth, or bourbon. In the case of compulsive gambling, addicts can no longer resist the pull of the casino, race track, or sports book, and the results can be devastating.

Casual Gambling vs. Gambling Addiction

 While some adults enjoy casual gambling during a trip to Atlantic City or as an online hobby, for gambling addicts these activities are a compulsion, not a choice. They can't control how often they're gambling or how much they're gambling at each session, and real-world relationships can suffer as a result. Other symptoms of compulsive gambling include:

  • The need to gamble more money, more often to achieve the same "high"
  • Taking increasingly large risks and receiving less pleasurable reward
  • Preoccupation with gambling, reliving past gambling experiences, or planning future gambling sessions
  • Using gambling to escape feelings of guilt, depression, or helplessness
  • Sacrificing work, school, or family in order to gamble
  • Lying about or hiding the amount of time or money spent gambling
  • Feeling shame, remorse, or guilt after gambling
  • Borrowing or stealing money to support gambling activities
  • Inability to cut back on or stop gambling despite desire to

Treatment for Compulsive Gambling

Your comprehensive treatment plan will use a combination of individual and group therapy to tackle both gambling-related triggers as well as emotional concerns that often go hand-in-hand with compulsive behaviors.

Your COBRA compulsive gambling treatment will likely also address any underlying issues that could be contributing to your compulsive behaviors. The manic episodes experienced by patients with bipolar disorder have been linked to compulsive gambling as have some medicines used to treat restless leg syndrome and Parkinson's disease.

What Will My COBRA Compulsive Gambling Treatment Cost?

Do you have an HMO or PPO plan? What is your deductible? How about your copays or coinsurance? Do you know whether you'll be admitted to an inpatient facility or receiving treatment on an outpatient basis? The answers to all of these questions will influence how much your treatment will ultimately cost, but the first step is simply to recognize that you have a problem and reach out for help.
