Our Team

Nutrition Month 2018 is always about healthy meals and responsible gambling. Most of our clients are individuals that have gambling addiction that causes health problems due to improper diet.

Gambling addiction

Gambling addiction is defined by doctors and psychologists as the compulsive desire to gamble with monetary stakes. In the International Classification of Diseases, gambling addiction is classified as a mental illness from the group of abnormal habits and impulse control disorders. At the same time, gambling addiction is classified as a non-substance-related addiction or dependence disease.

Healthy food and gaming balance

The treatment of gambling addiction usually requires a multimodal approach. On the one hand, it is a matter of gaining insight into the addictive disorder and working out alternative behavioural patterns in psychotherapy. In this context, cognitive behavioural therapy has proven particularly effective.

On the other hand, gambling addicts usually need further support during preferably inpatient therapy. Sociotherapeutic support helps, for example, to regulate debts, find a new job or a new flat.

Together with our addiction therapists, you work your personal path out of addiction.

Our sports and physiotherapists, occupational therapists as well as cultural educators train your performance, endurance, flexibility, and creativity with you.

Our common goal is for you to regain a healthy feeling for your body and to take pleasure in your own activities.
