Millions of people today suffer from a gambling addiction. While some are aware of their problem, others go without recognizing or treating their addiction. But how do you recover from gambling addiction if you’re a professional poker player? In 2013, Bluff Magazine explains how one poker player regained control of his life with the help of Morningside Recovery.
Bluff Magazine and Erick Lindgren
Bluff Magazine is an international news magazine about poker. It once had professional poker player Erick Lindgren on the front cover explaining how he was the all American individual. However, things took a turn one year when Lindgren took a major loss during the football season. While he was a professional poker player for a living, his gambling was spiraling out of control. After he lost a lot of money during a football season, friends reached out to say he needed professional help. Bluff Magazine then ran a story about how Morningside Recovery was able to help.
The Morningside Recovery Treatment
The team at Morningside Recovery recognizes that poker players gamble for a living. However, they also know how important it is to control this gambling. Instead of making Lindgren stop gambling altogether, a unique plan of treatment was created. This would target the areas of gambling that were beginning to cause problems in his personal life. He would then have the coping mechanisms to only gamble for work without jeopardizing his livelihood.
