Unfortunately, every fourth inhabitant of the Earth has a mental disorder. Every second woman and every tenth man is expressed in kleptomania. With the theft of children is relatively simple. It is quite another to adults. Almost every one of them knows what to take someone else's - is evil. And all the same steal. And many kleptomaniac absolutely do not need the details abducted them! In fact, on the assumption that there is such a disease - kleptomania, every thief for detail can say representatives of the law on his innocence and calmly continue his business.
As far as I know there is a large group of these who steal out for necessity or for profit. A wealthy man every time something pulled from a supermarket, explaining that it is the compensation for the high prices (so it seemed to him) or disgusting service. He always found the reason for the punishment of the store employees and never thought it was kleptomania. Treatment of such mental disorders is carried out in a specialized clinics. It is worth about twenty thousand dollars. So, this phenomenon is common enough in our world.
It is definitely kleptomania . Some see it as a way to obtain the desired dose of adrenaline or a fun adventure, while others are experiencing severe emotional distress. In the time of the theft, such people do not realize what they are doing. Understanding and remorse and shame come to them, when the action happened. Most pesters fear that the theft will be known by the family, friends, colleagues. Too impressionable such torment driven to suicide. It turns out, not so harmless kleptomania. So I think you can try to talk to your friend about his problem and point this everything to him.
Kleptomania is a type of disorder. The person cannot resist the temptation to commit theft, even if he is aware of a high probability of exposure. Many people who suffer from kleptomania, lifetime live with this disorder because they are afraid to seek psychiatric treatment. Although there is no specific treatment for kleptomania, treatment with medication or psychotherapy can help put an end to the cycle of compulsive larceny. To know for sure that your friend is ill in kleptomania I will write here the symptoms of it for you to check. Symptoms of kleptomania may include a compulsive attraction to the theft of objects, in fact not relevant to the patient and increased tension before the theft. If there are all these symptoms then the case is really serious one and you really need to find a very good specialist that can help. To tell the truth I don’t know if I had your situation what I would do. It is easier of course to say good bye to your friend but if he is really good friend of you you need at least to try to help him.
Unlike conventional shoplifters, people with kleptomania are not intended at the time of the theft of personal interests. They also do not commit theft out of a sense of revenge. They steal simple things because the desire is so strong that it is impossible to oppose it. This desire makes them feel uncomfortable, experience anxiety, stress or excitement. To calm these feelings, they steal. During the theft patients with kleptomania feel relief and satisfaction. Later, however, they may feel a tremendous sense of guilt, remorse, self-loathing and fear of arrest. But the desire is return, kleptomania, and the cycle repeats.
Episodes of kleptomania usually occur spontaneously, without planning. Most people with kleptomania commit theft in public places, such as in shops and supermarkets. Some of them may commit theft from friends or acquaintances. Often, the stolen items have no value for a person with kleptomania. Stolen things, usually hidden, never used. Stolen items can also be donated, given away to other family or friends, or even secretly returned to the place from which they were stolen. That is why I also think that you really need to help to determine the correct diagnosis for your friend.
If your friend can not cope with an irresistible craving for theft, he should consult a doctor. Many people who suffer from kleptomania, do not want to seek medical help because they are afraid they will be arrested or imprisoned. However, clinics do not report such cases to the police. Getting treatment can help to get control of kleptomania. If you suspect that your friend suffers from kleptomania, gently raise the question about this problem with him. Keep in mind that kleptomania is a mental state, rather than lack of character, so talk with your friend without charges.
The cause of kleptomania is not known. Scientists believe that kleptomania can cause the changes in the brain. Kleptomania may be related to problems with the natural chemical (neurotransmitter) in the brain called serotonin. Serotonin helps to regulate mood and emotion. Low serotonin levels are common in people who are prone to impulsive behavior. Kleptomania may also be associated with the release of other neurotransmitters - dopamine. Dopamine causes a pleasant feeling, and some people tend to experience that feeling again and again.
You're right, it is kleptomania. And I've heard that scientists have conducted some research about this. Studies have shown that kleptomania may develop after a brain injury. More research is needed to better understand all the possible causes of kleptomania. Kleptomania is considered rare. But I think that there are a lot of people who suffer from this problem. However, since many people with kleptomania never seek medical help, or simply end up in prison after committing a theft, a reliable level of prevalence of kleptomania is not registered. It is estimated that less than 5% of thieves are kleptomania. Kleptomania often begins in adolescence or early adulthood, but in rare cases it begins after 50 years. I noticed that a lot of people who are rich and it seems that they have everything stee little things in supermarkets…..i think that they just want to experience the high level of adrenalin in their blood veins…
I am sure this is a kleptomania and psychiatric help is needed here. Kleptomania is difficult to overcome on its own. Treatment typically involves drug therapy and, possibly together with self-help groups. However, there is no standard treatment for kleptomania, and researchers are still trying to understand what can help better in treating of this disorder. You may make your friend try several treatments of kleptomania to find what will work in a particular situation. I think you have to help your friend to contact the clinic.
