The ripple effect of addiction and mental health issues can hold us hostage, interfering in our ability to live fulfilling lives and develop meaningful connections with others. Many harbour a sense of shame reflective of stigma which serves to silence and with that dismiss both the severity and prevalence. It is common to have developed and maintained coping mechanisms that no longer serve a purpose yet have become habitual and with that familiar. Therapy is a place where thoughts and feelings are explored, validated, and with that normalized. Healing occurs through self-discovery and the sense of empowerment that accompanies this.

What is your outlet to address childhood issues, operational traumatic events, angry spells, depression or anxieties? Perhaps drink or two, shopping spree or excessive porn watching is the way to calm your mind. Do you feel preoccupied with non-medical use of drugs and start a day with a piece of a sweet cake are the ways to give you a rush of dopamine to your pleasure center in your brain to forget, to calm down, and decompress. Perhaps, you can find out if your behaviors are becoming out of control and how you can regulate your out-of-control thoughts and emotions and learn if these behaviors have anything to do with your past...

Gambling Counsellors
A compulsive gambler or a pathological gambler is someone who is unable to resist his or her impulses to gamble. The urge to gamble becomes so great that tension can only be relieved by more gambling.

There is a very fine line between problem gambling or Barrie gambling addiction and gambling too much. The critical sign of problem gambling is often hidden from awareness, with denial. Many gamblers in Barrie typically do not know they have a problem. Admitting you have a problem, or may have a problem, is the first step to recovery.

Treatment options include individual and group psychotherapy, and self-help support groups such as Gamblers Anonymous (a 12-step program for gamblers). Abstinence principles that apply to other types of addiction are also relevant in the treatment of compulsive gambling behavior in Barrie.

Recently, medications such as antidepressants, opioid antagonists, and mood stabilizers have been shown to be beneficial in combination with gambling treatment by a Barrie gambling counsellor or gambling counsellors in Barrie or those experienced with gambling behaviors in Barrie.
