March is Problem Gambling Awareness Month

Recent developments in technology have changed the way people gamble, increasing the risk of the user developing a problem.

In past years, organizations around the country have focused on all aspects of gambling addiction. This March, the Florida Council on Compulsive Gambling will take a greater look into how technology affects problem gambling.

With gambling becoming readily accessible to massive amounts of people, we need to do more as a society to ensure our most vulnerable citizens are protected. Those negatively impacted by gambling need to be able to access the appropriate care and support.

What can we do?
