Gambling and Internet habits in a French population with addictive disorders seeking treatment: a multicentric study

CONCLUSION: The prevalence of problem gambling is almost 4 times higher among addictology consultants, compared to the general population, probably related to addictive comorbidities. The identification of gambling habits concerned a small proportion of the patients included, whether in specialized care or outside. There is significant room for improvement in the identification of problem gambling, in addictology and beyond. It is important to question gambling habits for any reason for addiction consultation and to repeat this identification over time. As the Internet is widely used by addictology consultants, it can represent a key element in care, both in the identification of behavioral addictions and in follow-up.PMID:34857367 | DOI:10.1016/j.encep.2020.11.006
