The High Stakes of Problem Gambling

April 30, 2015 @ 11:50 am - 1:00 pm

638

What is problem gambling? Is it really an addiction like alcoholism? How does it affect the brain if you don’t ingest anything? And can people really become out of control playing Facebook games? Join Jim Leingang of Providence St. Peter Chemical Dependency Center and Kristin West from the Evergreen Council on Problem Gambling as they explore the many facets of this hidden addiction; and the heightened risks as access increases through technology.

Presented by: Kristin West, Outreach Coordinator, Evergreen Council on Problem Gambling & Jim Leingang, BA CDP WSCGC II, Providence St. Peter Chemical Dependency Center
