For a long time, gambling addiction was seen as a compulsive behavior, in other words it was thought that people with a gambling problem were not addicted, but simply unable to exercise self-control over their impulse to gamble.
It is only the most recent version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, DSM-5, that has finally recognized that gambling is an addictive activity, and that the addiction to gambling works in the same way as an addiction to drink or drugs.

Frequently Asked Questions
Gambling addiction is perhaps one of the most destructive process addictions. Gambling effortlessly rewires the brains neuroplasticity. A night of gambling, especially when combined with alcohol or drugs is a roller coaster of emotions. Oftentimes sufferers will be gambling with money they can’t afford to lose, regardless of amount. At times during the spree they will be ‘up’, at others they’ll be chasing losses and cashing in for more.

Do I have a gambling addiction?
Like any other addiction or disorder, gambling addiction should be diagnosed by our clinical experts. They will consider client history and behavior against the diagnostic criteria to determine if they have an addiction.
How does gambling addiction treatment work?
Because addiction is a disease, it is the behavior hijacking the brain’s reward circuitry that causes the addiction. This addiction formation process is the same as a drug addiction, so treatment for a gambling addiction follows much the same process as a drug addiction.
Why use rehab for gambling addiction?
Rehab for a gambling addiction may seem an odd choice because there may be no addictive substance like drugs or alcohol involved. However, like any other addiction treatment, a residential stay at Hacienda Paradiso offers an exponentially greater chance of success.
