Now around 13 million people worldwide trade in some form of cryptocurrency - yet the severity of "cryptocurrency addiction" is yet to be fully or empirically measured. Does the idea of taking a break from cryptocurrency trading annoy you?
Chris Burn, a gambling therapist at Castle Craig Hospital, suggested that the due to high volatility of the cryptocurrency markets, the appeal is too hard to ignore for the gamblers. As such, treatment for crypto addiction will follow a somewhat similar process for those addicted to gambling.
Victoria McCann, Castle Craig's communications executive, told WikiTribune that treatments are £2,975 per week for a multi-occupancy room, £3,850 for a twin room and £4,970 for a single room for the residential rehab treatment clinic. Marini, a former gambling and cocaine addict himself, said that his experience will be vital in helping these addicts recover from their issues and return to their normal lives.

Also, the doctors suspected that the Skripals suffer from the overdose of the opioid before the diagnosis changed. But it wasn't until when PC Nick Bailey also fell ill that staff realised they too may also be at risk.

In real life, you're all the dumb*ss. "When you see me on the news you'll know who I am", Cruz says while laughing. Andrew Pollack's daughter, Meadow, is one of Cruz's victims. "You're all stupid and brainwashed".

"Having been through it myself, my experience of addiction gives me insight and empathy towards others who have the same problem", Mr Marini said.
A single en suite bedroom in Castle Craig's intensive treatment programme costs £4,970 per week, and the cost of its "executive programme" starts at £9,240 per week.
The report said there already were drug and alcohol addiction services at the hospital, and now cryptocurrency problems are being addressed. Niko da Costa Gomez, for instance, is a frequent cryptocurrency trader who's been making a profit on his investments. He doesn't think a crypto-based rehabilitation program is necessary, nor does he believe anyone can become addicted - unless they're very rich.
Cryptocurrency trading addiction can be identified if a person exhibits some or all of 12 pointers noted by the hospital, including a person spending all their time and money trading, believing a big win is about to happen or even pawning their belongings to raise funds for trading.
