Are You a Bitcoin Trading Addict? Now There’s a “Crypto Clinic” for You


In essence, the fluctuating nature of crypto makes it a gambler’s paradise; not the casual, everyday gambler, but the hardcore devotees of risk and reward. With that adrenaline rush comes addiction, but now Scotland is fighting back through a remote hospital offering treatment for crypto addicts.

Try the Questionnaire

If you think you may be a crypto addict, you can try their questionnaire, as seen below:

  • Do you feel compelled to check cryptocurrency prices all the time?

  • Do you invest more on cryptocurrencies than you can afford?

  • Do you feel the need to invest larger amounts of money to get the same feeling?

  • Have you spent more to get back money you have lost trading in cryptocurrencies?

  • Have you borrowed money from friends and family or sold anything to invest in Cryptocurrencies?

  • Have you ever wondered whether you have a problem with cryptocurrency trading

  • Have you ever experienced the Fear of Missing Out (FoMO)?

  • Has your cryptocurrency trading ever caused you any health problems, including feelings of stress or anxiety?

  • Have people ever criticised your cryptocurrency trading or said you have an addiction problem (regardless of whether or not you thought it was true)?

  • Has your cryptocurrency trading ever caused financial problems for you or your family?

  • Have you ever felt guilty about trading in cryptocurrencies?


And Castle Craig hospital believe that treating crypto addiction can be achieved through the use of similar 12-step programmes that exist for alcoholism and drug addiction. Indeed, as with drug addiction clinics, they are encouraging people to come forward if they are being affected by the behavior of a potential addict too.

It is not known how many crypto addicts are really out there, but there are several stories of people losing life savings and getting into extreme debt because of unexpected crashes. Bearing this in mind, we’re recommending that if you’re reading this and thinking that you might have a problem with crypto trading, take a look at the Castle Craig site and either follow their advice online, or if you’re relatively local, give them a call.
