The CT Council on Problem gambling estimates approximately 70,000 Connecticut adults meet the clinical criteria for problem gambling disorder. An additional 285,000 people are at risk of developing a problem in their lifetime. Problem gambling is often times under-assessed or a component of an undiagnosed co-occurring disorder. This webinar will examine why people gamble, the diagnostic criteria for disordered gambling, screening tools, and available Connecticut treatment resources.
