Upcoming Webinar - Effective Screening for Gambling Disorder
Wed, April 26, 2017 @ 3:00- 4:00pm ET (2 CT/1 MT/12 PT)
There is a clear evidence that individuals in treatment for substance use disorders are at high risk for gambling and that unidentified gambling problems contributes to increased treatment costs and decreased treatment effectiveness. However, standard screening techniques have been largely ineffective in clinical settings. This presentation will focus on effective strategies for screening for gambling problems and initiating the conversation regarding the impact of gambling and problem gambling on recovery, health and wellbeing.
