Starting Gambling addiction counseling

What is Gambling addiction counseling?

Gambling addiction counseling is a specialized therapeutic approach designed to address and alleviate problematic or compulsive gambling behavior. It offers individuals a structured and supportive setting to delve into the root causes of their excessive gambling.

How does Gambling addiction counseling work?

Our gambling addiction therapists in Maumelle, AR will collaborate with you to identify and alter thought patterns and behaviors that drive your gambling compulsions, often employing cognitive behavioral techniques. The primary objective of this counseling is to assist you in regaining control, establishing healthier habits, and addressing any underlying emotional or psychological issues.

Is Gambling addiction counseling conducted in person or online?

Gambling addiction counseling with our providers at Thriveworks in Maumelle, AR is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Gambling addiction counseling last?

The length of gambling addiction counseling can differ depending on the person's particular requirements and the seriousness of their addiction. Typically, this form of counseling includes multiple sessions spanning from several weeks to several months. The precise number of sessions and overall therapy duration are determined through discussions with the counselor,

Ben Campbell is a student at M.I.T. in Boston.  Ben is someone who works hard and has a strong desire for success, and he wants to transfer to Harvard School of Medicine with the hopes of being a doctor one day.  This sounds good, however, Ben comes from a working-class family that has a track record that doesn’t lead to a lot of money.  Ben is introduced to a Math professor at M.I.T. that has a small, secret club of five students.  The club specializes in counting cards during games of blackjack, and they win big.  Ben sees this as an opportunity to make the money he needs to transfer to Harvard and begin his pathway towards medicine.  He decides to join the “club” and was only planning to be involved in counting cards until he earns enough money for medical school.  Ben discovers his extreme talent for counting cards and becomes addicted to it.  He gets a high from leaving the casino with stacks of money.  Greed takes over Ben and because of that, Ben *spoiler alert* loses everything.

This scenario comes from the movie 21, and even though this is the plot line of a movie, it is an extremely real problem people face.  Gambling can cause harm to those engaging in it and their loved ones.  Just like any other addiction, gambling can change an individual’s brain so that they become dependent.  At Thriveworks Maumelle, we have therapists who specialize in helping those struggling with gambling addiction.

Common Myths Associated with Gambling Addiction:

There are multiple myths and beliefs that surround gambling.  Have you ever thought to compare those myths to reality?  Let’s look at some of the common myths about gambling:

  • My luck will change, and I am sure I will win my money back
  • I haven’t won recently, I must be due for a win
  • The more I play, the greater my chances are for winning
  • Today is my lucky day

While these thoughts sound pleasant, the reality is much different.  When you gamble, there is only a chance of winning money.

Symptoms of Gambling Addiction

When discussing gambling addiction, it is important to remember that a lot of people gamble, but not everyone is addicted.  Gambling addiction mimics substance addiction in one’s brain—dopamine floods the brain.  This dopamine causes a high that then one becomes addicted to.

When someone who casually gambles loses money, chances are they stop.  When someone with a gambling addiction loses money, they feel compelled to keep playing to win that money back.   The DSM-5 gives criteria for diagnosing and recognizing addiction.  Of these symptoms, an individual with a gambling addiction will exhibit a minimum of four for at least a year:

  • Spending more and more on gambling in order to feel good feelings
  • When attempting to curb or stop, experiencing emotions like restlessness and irritability
  • Gambling as a way to cope with difficult feelings, like guilt, anxiety, depression, and more
  • Gambling to attempt to win money back that has been lost
  • Deceiving others about where, when, how, and how much one is gambling
  • Risking one’s opportunities, relationships, jobs, and more (not just money) in order to wager
  • Borrowing money from others in order to place one’s bets
  • Continuing to gamble despite financial hardships

I cannot say enough good about this place. They honestly do strive to get you in to see a practitioner quickly. And the importance of being seen soon to someone who is at a bad psychological point cannot be understated. It can, literally, mean the difference between life and death. After years of no longer being able to trust mental health providers due to so much misdiagnosis I reached out to Thriveworks. I asked for a particular practitioner, and they had me in to see her the following day. Kristy's approach was welcoming, empathetic, friendly, and down-to-earth. She did not speak down to me as a patient, but she made a comfortable effort to connect from the beginning. Gaining my trust over several weeks she was able to start showing me some things no one ever took the time to extract. She found me at the precipice of a terrible situation and worked me back from the ledge. Her input to Zack, along with his personable and empathetic personality, finally got me on medications that actually have improved my situation more than I could have ever imagined. The combination of her therapy and the medications have me, for the first time in decades, recognizing a hope for the future. All I can say is if you are that person who has lost hope and feels as though you have no purpose, let the Thriveworks team have a chance to show you a you even you didn't know existed. Without hyperbole I can honestly say I owe my life going forward to Kristy and Zack.

After working with Zack for a year I would say that he is very dependable and does show concern for his patients. There is never any problem with following hospital policy. Always a good man to have on your team.

Zacks a wonderful guy to see. He really listens to all your concerns and explains your treatment options in detail. Anyone that sees him is going to feel comfortable talking to him and not have that feeling as if your talking to a stranger.

I've dealt with severe anxiety and depression for as long as I can remember, and have seen multiple providers to try and get control of my emotions. I thought I was a lost cause until I found Zack. He was the first "medicine guy" that I met with that actually got me! He has a calming demeanor and had me very comfortable from the very first appointment. He's easy to work with and actually cares about how I'm feeling! Seeing Zack was the best decision I could have made. Now I'm feeling much better and finally feel like I can breathe. Thank you Zack and Thriveworks for all you do!

I would like to thank you for helping out a family member in need. North Little Rock isn't far away and that made everything easy for a depression/anxiety patient. Office was easy to get to.

Ms. Tenethrea Buffington is the best! I went in telling her that I didn't believe in coaching/therapy, well I was wrong. She help me in my difficult situation and I could not be more happy with where I stand with it.
