​Spain classes gambling addiction as a mental health disorder

The gambling regulator in Spain, the Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ), has announced that it will now treat gambling addiction as a mental disorder. The approach means that people identified with a gambling disorder will now be able to access the same levels of treatment and support as people with other addiction disorders. The DGOJ will also implement a registration service to facilitate the exclusion of people with gambling disorders from official gambling outlets.
