GAMBLING ADDICTION TREATMENT
Gambling is undoubtedly a disease. The main symptom is the constant participation in gambling games, which repeats over and over and gets worse regardless of the consequences (poverty, destruction of personal, professional and family life). Usually people start to gamble out of curiosity, as a social game, for pleasure, to escape from everyday problems etc. However, many do not understand that not only money, but also mental health may be at the stake. Bets get larger and larger and gamblers begin to fall into the so-called gambling trance. Gambling trance is accompanied by altered states of consciousness, when gamblers forget about the world around them.
The first and most important phase of treatment. The essence of diagnosis is to assess the physical and mental condition of the patient. In order to assess the physical condition of the patient, the standard diagnosis examination includes:
- urine test
- tests for hepatitis B and C, as well as for HIV infection
- general analysis of blood
- biochemical blood test
- examination by the internist doctor
At the beginning of the treatment it is necessary to carry out the pharmacological stabilization of the mental condition of the patient. With the help of medication, it is important to achieve balance and to relieve anxiety, tension, depression etc. Only after the patient is able again to accept, analyze and react to events adequately, it is possible to move on to the next phase of treatment.
3. Gambling addiction treatments with modern medical devices:
Psychostabilization - after overcoming the abstinence syndrome, the patient starts to feel better, but unfortunately dependence is not over. The most important stage of the treatment begins. In this stage a negative attitude to alcohol is formed and its attractiveness is eliminated. We apply special procedures that prevent patients from
- NeuroJet (N.E.T) therapy - a method, by which special impulses affect brain neurons responsible for the secretion of endorphins. Neurojet is a small electronic device that normalizes dopamine and endorphins. Stimulation with the Neurojet device is painless. The patient feels only a weak tickling and vibration. The frequency and intensity of the pulses are computer-controlled.
- Lateral therapy - for the normalization of the asymmetry between cerebral hemispheres represents a neurophysiological method for the correction of behavioral disorders and pathological desire to gamble. This method leads to the normalization of the functioning of the left and right cerebral hemispheres.
- Eye Movement Integrator - is a desensitization method, which uses repeated series of eye movements, in order to block and accelerate experiences that are associated with the pathological desire to gamble. Special glasses send encoded video signals, while a headset broadcasts sound signals. A computer transmits the information. The information is divided into short, striking images, which quickly create, on a subconscious level, new associations related to the lethality of gambling, the aversion to it and a negative attitude to the atmosphere and rituals at gambling houses.
Psychotherapy - we carry out several types of psychotherapy:
- Individual psychotherapy includes individual work psychotherapist with the patient. The therapist trains the patient about how to live and work under stress, in order to preserve the integrity of their personality and to have a mature attitude towards fellow human beings. Together with the therapist, patients write a daily activity plan, which they are obliged to abide by during the outpatient treatment stage.
- Educational psychotherapy it helps to detect the causes of the disease. Patients learn about misconceptions on the disease, as well as about its physical, occupational and social consequences. They are also trained in the rules of conduct during abstinence. Patients watch special movies about the consequences of gambling.
- Group psychotherapy is the work of a psychotherapist with a group of patients, aimed at resolving internal conflicts, eliminating tension and correcting behavior disorders. This kind of psychotherapy allows patients to understand that they are not alone with their problems and that their problems are not insoluble.
- Family psychotherapy is a psychological assistance method, by which the psychotherapist works with the patient's family members. Usually, family members of the family are co-addict in the disease. During this therapy they learn how to behave with the patient after discharge from hospital. Family therapy is a special form of psychological consultation focused on solving problems in interpersonal family relationships and eliminating conflicts between family members.
5. Mental block
Mental block - is a procedure with elements of hypnosis, by which patients may relive their lives for a short time in a state of trance. During the procedure patients kaleidoscopically observe and participate in the most important events of their lives. They can see images from their childhood, as well as people and events that heavily influenced the patient's life. At those moments, patients experience their mistakes in a turbulent and emotional way. They can see the tragic consequences of their actions related to gambling. Many of them "see things clearly". They cry and say that, after experiencing that, nothing can make them go back to gambling.
6. Outpatient treatment
The outpatient stage of the treatment begins after discharging the patient from hospital. It lasts one year and includes regular monthly checks (included in the price of the treatment package). The patients remain in contact with the hospital and doctors give them the necessary advice and assistance at any time in the event that problems arise. Upon discharge from hospital, patients and their relatives receive a discharge note, as well as detailed advice and guidance related to the recommended therapy. Support from the nearest people significantly increases the chances of success. Patients from abroad will be in contact with doctors via e-mail, Skype and phone.
