Mercer County Problem Gambling Webinar – Current Trends in PA

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 couple of years, we have seen the launch of several new types of gambling, resulting in a dramatic increase in availability and participation. Unfortunately, we have also seen more individuals than ever, reaching out for help.

It is vital for treatment and prevention professionals to not only be aware of the current trends of gambling participation in order to better serve those they work with, but also to have a better understanding of the activities that may lead to new problems. This program will explore recent gambling participation in PA, past year Helpline activity and 2021 PA Youth Survey (PAYS) data, as well as the several tools, resources and protections that are currently available in PA.

 

Presenter:

  • Josh Ercole, Executive Director, CCGP
