Psychedelic Therapy for Gambling Addiction
Gambling is one of the better understood process addictions that people commonly suffer from. Winning a bet gives just as powerful a neurological signal as a shot of morphine, and losing streaks carry the same symptoms as an addict in withdrawal.
Like any addiction, gambling addiction is incredibly destructive to a person’s emotional, physical, and psychological health, with far-reaching implications for their loved ones. The promise that one can win it all after losing everything, then do it all over again, is a difficult cycle to break.
But just like any other addiction, there is something in our behavior that is trying to communicate with us. The comfort of the card table or the slot machine fills something within that we feel is lacking, and we’ll strive after that reward no matter how deep in the hole we get.

When we are trapped in a cycle of winning and losing, it can be very difficult to exit that state of consciousness.
