What are the signs & symptoms of Gambling Addiction?

Gambling addiction shares many symptoms with alcohol addiction and substance abuse. The first and often most common symptom is an increased need to gamble accompanied by denial. The gambling addict will refuse to recognize how their gambling addiction is taking up more of their lives and further withdrawing and isolating them from others. Because the addictive behaviours are rewarding in and of themselves, those prone to addictive behaviours tend to become addicted simply by participating in the act. Because of its very destructive nature, it is important to start gambling addiction treatment early.  To learn more about gambling addiction, or start your treatment, call Life Works at 0800 081 0700 or fill out our contact form.
