The gambling disorder (GD) has been classified as an addictive disorder in the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5, 2013). In this paper, after a synthetic overview of the treated issue (game, gambling, GD), some interesting aspects on the birth of psychotherapy of addictions are presented. Then the role of psychotherapy in the current treatments of addictions, especially GD, is assessed.
