Spanish rehabilitation center The Balance has added treatment for cryptocurrency trading, which has become a new type of addiction, to its list of services.
The center was founded in Switzerland, but the main office is located on the Spanish island of Mallorca. There are also branches in London and Zurich. Recently, a client approached the Center with a request to help him cope with his addiction to trading cryptocurrencies. According to him, he weekly uncontrollably made transactions in the amount of $ 200,000 or more.
Treatment for this addiction lasts four weeks and is carried out with the help of psychotherapy, as well as wellness treatments such as massage and yoga. The cost of treatment can be as high as $75,000. The organization said they are approaching rehabilitation with the help of cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and psychodynamic theory.
The specifics of the dynamic cryptocurrency market, with its constant ups and downs, has led to a real demand for the services of rehabilitation centers. Now, among people struggling with drug, alcohol or other addictions, one can see those who are addicted to cryptocurrency trading.
Back in 2020, a study was published on trading addiction. According to him, there is a connection between excessive interest in trading cryptocurrencies and gambling addiction.
