Event Details

The Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs presents a virtual, advanced problem gambling training conducted by the Council on Compulsive Gambling of Pennsylvania


Advanced Biopsychosocial-Spiritual Treatment Design

Treatment for gambling use disorder is as complex as the individuals who develop the disorder.
The importance of treating the whole person from a cultural, biological, social  and spiritual
perspective cannot be ignored. Having gained information on gambling, those impacted by
gambling, and the unique aspects of treatment of gambling disorder integrating, connecting,
and applying these concepts to program design will be a focus. The importance of spirituality,
relapse prevention, biology, and cultural strengths in recovery will be covered in their
application to gambling disorder.  This workshop will allow attendees to work together to design treatment plans, using a variety of approaches, based on these complexities.
