Don once invested as much as $200,000 (£164,700) every week in bitcoin exchanges.

He had sporadic sleep and would get up early to check the stock market and the value of his wealth.

"I'd break into a sweat before going on long-haul flights, as I would not be able to access the internet."

Don works for a business that handles transactions involving central bank digital currency (CBDC). He wished to stay anonymous because he was concerned that his remarks may lead investors to react negatively. He did not want to share his true name.

He claims that towards the middle of 2022, he entered a "downward spiral," at which point he made the decision to get treatment.

The answer was a four-week stay at The Balance, a sizable rehabilitation facility on the Spanish island of Majorca that employs dozens of people.

Don had his own butler and cook and resided in a secluded villa. The cost of his treatment, which included counselling as well as massages, yoga, and bike rides, was almost $75,000 in all.

The Balance, which was established in Zurich and has locations in London and Majorca, touts itself as a "safe zone facilitating health and fulfillment." The landing page features images of a seaside property, a spa, and raving reviews from previous customers. The center provides a list of therapy options for eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, burnout, and anxiety.

Don said it assisted him in "weaning off crypto."

A trading frenzy in digital currencies has been sparked by the epidemic and a turbulent cryptocurrency market. Luxury treatment facilities are already springing up all over the place, promising to treat "crypto addiction."
