“Mobile”izing Pennsylvania:
Preparation in an Age of Expansion of Gambling and Gaming

Today, more people have access to, and are participating in, gambling activities than ever before. While the majority of the population is able to gamble without developing any issues, there are a small percentage of people who are unable to maintain responsible levels of play. Unfortunately for these individuals, this often progresses to a point where several areas of their lives are impacted in a negative way.

In October 2017 a major gambling expansion bill was passed in Pennsylvania, allowing for the possibility of more legalized gambling than ever before. Over the past several months, we have seen the launch of several new types of gambling, with more being made available soon. It is vital for treatment and prevention professionals to not only be aware of this expansion in order to better serve clients, but also to have a better understanding of the games that may lead to new populations of clients. In addition to regulated gambling, it is also vital to recognize the continuing popularity and expansion of video gaming, and the many connections it has to gambling.
