Treating Gambling Problems

Gambling has become increasingly socially acceptable and widely available in the United States. As a result, substance use counselors, behavioral health professionals, primary care physicians, and social workers are increasingly encountering people who are in need of gambling treatment services. Gambling problems are an important public health concern because they are associated with serious physical, social, psychological, financial, and legal problems. Unfortunately, very few individuals with a gambling problem seek help either from a behavioral health professional or through 12-step programs like Gamblers Anonymous (GA). This course provides an overview of gambling problems and focuses on screening, assessment, and treatment. After you complete the course, you will have a better understanding of how to identify and treat a disorder that often goes untreated despite its significant effect on individuals and the community. This course is appropriate for a variety of clinical professionals with basic to intermediate levels of experience. The material in this course is not a substitute for specific training on treatment of gambling disorder. Each client's situation is different and requires clinical judgment to tailor interventions and treatment goals to the needs of the individual.
