Not really. If you have the available 'disposable' income or financial reserves without being 'hurt' in any way
by losing and you still derive enjoyment and pleasure from playing, then you don't need counseling. (besides, don't disturb the fish).
OTOH, even a 'break even' player who loses nothing financially can still suffer an addiction. Poker can become an obsession that interferes with relationships, job performance, lack of sleep, the simple necessitites of being a parent (time) etc. A true addiction does not have to be based only in finances.
