Gambling Addiction

Gambling addiction is often referred to as the “secret behavioral addiction” because it is soften unacknowledged. Just like all other addictions, the problem lies in the reward center of the human brain. A compulsive gambler is drawn to a high they feel when they place a bet which has parallel effects to the brain as substance use.
Gambling is an emotional problem with financial consequences, not a financial one.
It also affects how the individual suffering from the disorder interacts with his or her family and friends. They may, for example, miss crucial family events or be absent from work.
