Costly AddictionStreaming Video - 2006
Every year in North America, chronic compulsive gambling shatters the lives of millions. In this program, psychologists Claude Boutin and Robert Ladouceur talk with recovering gamblers who share their stories of exhilaration and despair as they rode the roller coaster to ruin-what it felt like to win and lose, to spend every dollar they had, to lie and steal in order to finance their addiction, to contemplate suicide, and, fortunately, to enter group therapy. The program also describes the emotional attraction of games of chance and explains the biochemical roles of serotonin and dopamine in gambling addiction.
