King County Peer Support Network Presentation
January 17, 2015 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Is gambling really an addition like alcoholism? How do people become addicted to gambling and what happens when they do? Is treatment possible? Are Facebook games really another form of gambling? Join Kristin West, Outreach coordinator for The Evergreen Council on Problem Gambling, as she gives a history of gambling and looks at why some people become addicted to this socially normalized activity. Treatments, new technology, the changing face of what a “gambling addict” looks like and where people can get help for themselves, family or friends will be covered.
