PPO Rehab and Compulsive Gambling Treatment


An estimated 2 to 3 percent of Americans suffer from an addiction to gambling, the effects of which can wreak havoc on everything from your financial situation to your personal relationships.. While there is no cure for gambling addiction, you can get the help you need through PPO compulsive gambling treatment.

Evaluating Your Insurance Plan

There are several types of insurance plans; each has its own set of pros and cons and each plan offers patients a different way to approach their compulsive gambling treatment.

  • HMO stands for Health Maintenance Organization. HMO insurance plans are generally the most affordable options in regards to up front out-of-pocket costs. You may less per month with your HMO plan and have a lower yearly deductible, but in exchange there are some restrictions. Everything under the umbrella of an HMO passes through your primary care physician (PCP), who must give you a referral before you can see any kind of specialist, including an addiction specialist. This can make it difficult to see the doctor you prefer, but for some people the lower cost is worth it.
  • PPO stands for Preferred Provider Organization. PPOs may be more costly on paper, but they come with the added benefits of flexibility and control. If you're seeking PPO compulsive gambling treatment, you can call the facilities and addiction specialists of your choice without having to make an appointment and get the approval of a PCP first.

Unlike drug or alcohol abuse which can sometimes be easy to identify due to tell-tale physical signs, compulsive gambling is a a little more difficult to recognize. Still, there are some symptoms that serve as an indication that the person in question would benefit from PPO compulsive gambling treatment:

  • Seeking bigger and bigger gambling risks in order to feel the same sense of pleasure or "high"
  • Preoccupation with gambling or with reliving past gambling experiences
  • Using gambling to escape real world problems
  • Feeling guilty, ashamed, or regretful because of gambling activity
  • Hiding or lying about how much time or money is being spent gambling
  • Borrowing or stealing money to support gambling habit
  • Inability to cut back on or stop gambling even when trying to

If any or all of these symptoms sound familiar, it may be time to use your PPO compulsive gambling treatment coverage to get the help you need, so you can live the happy, stress-free life you deserve.
