Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Problem Gambling

Participants will learn about similarities and differences between a gambling disorder and other addictive disorders. The historical perspective of problem gambling, the types of gamblers and the gambling progression will be explored as well. The group will also explore the effect the problem gambler has on the family and risk factors. Participants will be able to identify if there is a problem with gambling in the family and understand treatment and support options available.

H.O.W. (Honesty, Open-mindedness and Willingness)

When people begin to develop problems associated with negative addictive behaviors or are in addiction, they often lie to hide the extent of the problem. Along with dishonesty they are often closed minded to suggestions or unwilling to engage in solutions that can alleviate the problems. This 1-hour group will explore these topics to help reduce barriers to recovery.
