When most people think about treatment centers, their thoughts usually turn to seeking help for drug or alcohol abuse. The fact, there are different types of treatment centers, and not all of them deal directly with substance abuse.

Compulsive gambling treatment centers are exactly what they sound. They are facilities where people who have a gambling addiction, which can be just as strong and life-destroying as a substance abuse addiction, can go to receive help.

Many people may not even consider compulsive gambling a true addiction. For them, it's simply "harmless" fun. However, the symptoms of a compulsive gambling addiction are the same as for substance abuse, except that you don't actually go through a physical withdrawal. If you ask someone who has endured withdrawal of any kind, though, that person might very well tell you that the mental part of the withdrawal phase can be just as painful as the physical part.

Some of these facilities are aware that compulsive gambling and substance abuse often go hand in hand. They are set up to provide treatment for both the gambling and other addictions that may be present. Others are designed to specifically treat compulsive gambling without substance abuse.

Still others may offer both types of treatment in separate areas, or by placing those with only compulsive gambling addictions with certain staff members. This ensures that everyone is receiving the exact type of treatment required.

There are treatment centers for compulsive gambling in San Diego that address all aspects of gambling addiction. If you're not sure exactly which treatment centers provide which type of treatment, you can go to or call 1-888-565-6401 for further information.
