What is self-banning?

One of the measures that a person who acknowledges their addiction to gambling can take is to apply to be included in the Interdiction Register of the Ministry of Finance and Public Administrations.
Once this application has been approved, the public administrations and the companies will prevent access to the physical venues or internet portals where gambling takes place.

What is its purpose?

Self-banning alone does not solve the problem of pathological gambling, but it helps people who are already under treatment so that, if they relapse, they can be discouraged. It also helps patients to become more aware of the problem they have. If, having acknowledged our gambling addiction, we cannot rely on willpower alone, we will have to use all the strategies available to us to help avoid relapsing into gambling.
