Problem Gambling & Gaming
Did You Know?
Although problem gambling is under-recognized and gaming addiction is a newly recognized disorder, about 2% of people will have a gambling disorder in their lifetimes.
Living within 40-50 miles of a casino increases your chance of developing a gambling problem.
Among different types of addiction, gambling is associated with the highest suicide rate.
Here is a look at problem gambling in our region.
