Gaming & Gambling Addiction Prevention Programs
What Are Gambling & Gaming Addictions?
Problem gambling can span a wide variety of activities, from problem gambling to video game addiction. These addictions are often insidious and difficult to recognize, as many forms of gaming are socially acceptable with little to any legal limitations.
While the majority of gamers/gamblers do not experience dependence, in some cases problem gambling can be just as destructive as alcohol and drug addictions. Our approach to problem gambling prevention focuses on education for youth and adults.
