Alcoholism, prescription painkiller addiction, gambling, depression – all these issues and more can become issues of high urgency in a society plagued by a recession. As unemployment and the threat of unemployment take over and bills pile up, more and more Americans seek refuge in compulsive behaviors. Unfortunately, these behaviors can become addictions and ultimately just increase the stress and problems at home.

Compulsive Disorders: Addiction and Gambling Go Hand in Hand
When one compulsive disorder exists, it’s fairly common for the patient to experience issues with another compulsive disorder as well. For example, both gambling addiction and drug dependence are disorders that are defined by compulsively indulging in the self-destructive behavior (e.g., gambling or abusing drugs) – many gamblers are often addicts.
In a May 2012 gambling raid in Fort Worth TX, many of the 60 people arrested weren’t just gambling – many were caught with drug paraphernalia and illicit substances as well. In order to continue gambling for long periods of time, many drink alcohol or indulge in stimulant drugs. In fact, many patients will stop gambling when they stop abusing drugs and alcohol. Relapse in one behavior often precipitates relapse in the other behavior as well.
In these cases, it’s important for patients to seek drug addiction treatment that addresses their issues with other compulsive behaviors. Those who fight off self-destructive behaviors like sex addiction, gambling addiction, food addiction and codependency often require a specialized addiction treatment program that offers psychotherapeutic treatments that address these issues as well as the problems related to addiction.
