Setting an example of accurate use of technology to help mankind, a gambling harm solutions platform, Gambless, has launched a mobile application to help people addicted to gambling.
The company, living its motto of ‘Responsible Gambling’, has launched the app to prevent and to treat ‘pathological gambling’ or addictive gambling. The App takes into account a complete perspective on mental health and provides for courses such as Problem Gambling, Emotional Intelligence, Anti-Stress, and Anti-Loneliness etc.
Along with these psycho-educational courses, the app provides for other resources such as informative articles, self-care dairy, emergency chat box, and skill exercises etc.
The Problem Gambling program has been developed by a team of psychologists specialized in gambling problems and other compulsive disorders and have combined various techniques to create this program.
CEO of the Gambless, Maurizio Savino stated that because of the stigma attached to gambling addiction, less accessibility to therapies due to high prices and low awareness among people this issue does not get adequately addressed. The said App developed by the company, addresses all these barriers and provides affordable treatment with greater accessibility and at the same time ensures the privacy of the users.
The makers plan to expand the reach of the app by adding more languages as the application is currently available in UK, Russia and Italy. The same is available for both Android and iOS phones.
