Compulsive Gambling – Pathological Gambling Typically Causes Distress

For many people, slots, blackjack, lottery, the pool table, horse racing and checking out casinos represent safe, stress-relieving activities. However, for some, what starts as an unimportant and casual hobby can develop into pathological gambling, which is a progressive disease that can damage both the sufferer and those around them. As time advances, the casual bettor ends up being addicted to betting bigger quantities and taking higher risks. Pathological gamblers suffer from a loss of control and rejection.

We use detailed laboratory testing to recognise any physical, biochemical or neurochemical imbalances. We discover that guests are not likely to recuperate up until their neurochemistry is working correctly. We then use lab testing, psychological tests and other assessments to find out why our guest has embraced pathological gambling as a survival strategy and to help them develop healthy coping systems.

Treatment of Compulsive Gambling at The Banyans Luxury Wellness Rehab Centre

It is necessary to acknowledge that pathological gambling develops from a mix of physical, psychological, hereditary, biochemical and social elements. Our goal is to recognise the underlying reasons for the condition and to bring back healthy coping mechanisms so that our customers are able to lead a regular life. To reach this objective, we treat the entire person: body, mind and spirit.

Individualised Treatment


The Banyans offers a customised treatment approach to help fulfil the accurate needs of each client. We deal with clients separately, not in groups, so our whole clinical group (comprising physicians, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, counsellors and nutritionists) and our complementary treatment group can work with just one resident on an individual basis. We look below the signs as a way to understand the function of addictive behaviour in the customer’s life. When we identify the underlying causes of our client’s disorder, we treat them using research-based interventions.
