Effects of Gambling Addictions Westerly RI

Gambling addiction can make people feel just as terrible when they are up as when they are down. It is when those gamblers hit rock bottom that the real problems occur, though. When money is owed to different sources, people will do just about anything to get it. This can lead to crime, dishonesty, and a whole host of social problems that will simply compound the problem gambler’s awful set of circumstances. There are not a whole lot of cures for gambling addiction.
