Behavioural addictions are when someone becomes dependent on a specific action or activity, and it becomes the sole purpose of their life. We treat all behavioural addictions at Ibiza Calm.
Gambling addiction is probably the most widespread behavioural addiction. Compulsive gamblers become addicted to sports betting, casino games such as roulette, slot machines or online poker.
Gambling addicts, or compulsive gamblers, have a constant craving that is similar to a cocaine addiction. They tend to get reckless with their finances, and with their relationships, are usually in denial and often lie to those around them.
The internet and smartphones has made gambling much more accessible and the result is that this type of addiction is increasing fast. Unfortunately there is a general lack of public awareness about this problem.
Many people with an addiction have eating disorders and the team at Ibiza Calm are trained to treat this condition in a sympathetic and effective way. Eating Disorders, or abnormal eating patterns, can take a heavy toll on both physical and mental health.
The most common eating disorders are bulimia, binge eating and anorexia. Bulimia is manifested by overeating followed by episodes of purging, or vomiting. Anorexia is caused by over-dieting and an excessive concern for weight and appearance. Anorexics lose weight rapidly, skip meals and still feel that they are overweight.
Sex Addiction is a compulsive sexual disorder which can manifests itself in many ways. Because of psychological triggers such as stress, anxiety or depression, people with sex addiction are driven to risky sexual behavior.
Sex addiction can have serious social consequences as well as on both mental and physical health. Risky and compulsive sexual behavior can result in venereal diseases, sexual dysfunction and the loss of normal relationships and a healthy family life.
