Confirmation of Comorbidity

Confirmation of Comorbidity

It’s long been known that an addiction to gambling is usually accompanied by other addictions, whether it’s alcohol, drugs or any other compulsion like online shopping or sex. A recent study linked compulsive gambling with psychiatric disorders of any kind, indicating that those who are susceptible to a gambling disorder have already exhibited a weakness or problem in other areas. And those that have been diagnosed with a gambling disorder most often are found to have problems in other areas. But it’s clear that a gambling problem is inexorably linked to other psychiatric disorders. Could this make it easier to diagnose someone who might have a gambling problem? Efforts are under way at the International Center for Responsible Gaming, the National Center for Problem Gambling and Conscious Gaming to determine if there truly is a correlation.
