Shine the Light on Problem Gambling

March is Problem Gambling Awareness Month

Lights on Problem Gambling: The Hidden Addiction.

Unlike other addictions, problem gamblers do not display physical signs. There are no “card marks” on the arms, no “roulette breath,” no “dice eyes,” and no saturation point. While visible symptoms are minimal, problem gamblers are often depressed, anxious, and may have suicidal thoughts. They often neglect family and friends,

run up large amounts of debt, and may be involved in illegal activity in order to fund their gambling addiction. Gambling addiction is a diagnosable and treatable mental health disorder. Help and hope are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
