More Crypto-Recovery Coverage

Recently I was contacted by the prestigious online Crypto magazine “Decrypt”. They had recently become aware that us counselling folk had stumbled across victims of the recent upsurge in Crypto.

These individuals were mixing drugs and tech to get high level rewards in a game where the stakes were always high. This had lead to some pretty incredible behaviour, but most importantly has highlighted an area that sorely needs our attention.

The article draws focus on myself as a counsellor on the front-line and also the well-established rehab Castle Craig, which has been dubbed the “Crypto-castle” as they’re currently inundated with crypto addicts.

Some highlights from the article:

“Some of my clients in the past have made their income due to crypto, they are still invested in developing various software and future developments in crypto, which of course can add a layer of complication to the matter,” he says.

“One flaw I find currently is that a lot of therapists are very unfamiliar with the culture, they don’t quite get what it is,” he adds.

Crypto trading diverges from gambling (and stock trading), he explains, through characteristics including its 24-7 availability, its volatility and the huge volume of social media that readily reinforces addicts’ out-of-control tendencies.

After our conversation, Kerr puts me in touch with Dan (not his real name), a client who lives in London, works in IT, and lost all his savings when Bitcoin crashed in 2018.
