Learning Objectives

There are substantial risks for those currently serving or who have served in the military to be faced with a gambling problem; a problem not only impacting them, but others in their lives. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) made a clear and strong recommendation that all branches of the military screen, assess and provide treatment for Gambling Disorder. Furthermore, the most current Defense Department Authorization Act has mandated that all services screen for Gambling Disorder. However, there has yet been a systemwide approach to integrating GD into existing addiction and behavioral health services within the Department of Defense or Veterans Administration. This training will address the special needs and risk factors among active duty service members and veterans around problem gambling. Co-occurring issues such as PTSD and suicide will also be discussed.

Attendees should be able to:

  • Identify scope of problem gambling in active duty military and veteran populations
  • Identify problem gambling risk factors for those serving in the military
  • Adapt treatment strategies to best align with military and veteran groups
