Event Details

Join The PA Link to Aging & Disability Resources – Bucks, Chester and Montgomery & 

The Council on Compulsive Gambling of PA

for a morning of continuing education on the topic of problem gambling

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 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 experience mental health issues and/or experiencing substance use issues. During this program participants will learn about the problem, how it often develops, what help is available and how to best approach working with someone who may be suffering from gambling disorder.
