Gambling Therapists
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 Tacoma gambling addiction and gambling too much. The critical sign of problem gambling is often hidden from awareness, with denial. Many gamblers in Tacoma 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 Tacoma.

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

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Tacoma are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Tacoma you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Tacoma and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Tacoma or family therapy in Tacoma.
