Are you or a loved one at risk for problem gambling?

Before you or a loved one tries gambling, it’s important to know if it could turn into a problem. The questions below can give you an idea of the risk.
  • Do you currently or have you previously had an issue with alcohol or substance misuse?
  • Do you currently or have you previously dealt with an addiction?
  • Have you ever received treatment (In-patient or out-patient care at a rehabilitation center) for an addiction?
  • Do you regularly attend any recovery support groups, such as AA or NA meetings?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you should think twice before gambling.
