Indiana County Webinar: Older Adults and Gambling

Today, more people have access to, and are participating in, gambling activities than ever before. Older adults are no exception. While the majority of the population is able to gamble without developing any issues, there is 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.

 

Research indicates this is a common co-occurring disorder among individuals who are experiencing mental health issues and/or experiencing substance use issues. This is often the case with the aging population. During this program, participants will learn about the problem, how it often develops, warning signs that are often displayed, and most importantly, what help is available. With a focus on older adults, discussion will also include ways to maintain responsible levels of participation, in an effort to avoid problems from developing, or becoming worse.

Presenter:

  • Gregory A Krausz, MA, CAADC, LPC
