The skills to overcome compulsive gambling can be learned. Your therapist will guide you through the recovery process, teach you the skills you need, and provide feedback and encouragement.

  • Admit You Have a Problem. This is the first step to recovery.
  • Identify Why You Are Gambling. What unpleasant feelings does the compulsive gambling help you avoid?
  • Identify Justifications. What thought patterns and verbalizations are you using to justify your addiction?
  • Identify Triggers. Define the places, situations or events that trigger you to gamble.
