“Problem Gambling and the Military”
Presented by: Mary Drexler, MSW, Program Director
Unhealthy gambling is a problem for many in our nation’s military. Nearly 10% of US veterans struggle with disordered gambling, a rate two-three times higher than the general population. Military experiences and post-deployment stress can be attributed to this higher risk of problem gambling and gambling addiction in this population, as well as the abundance of opportunities for veterans and enlisted personnel to gamble. This webinar will review how we as professionals can adapt our strategies for prevention, treatment and recovery of gambling disorder with military and veterans to best meet their needs and help them take back control of their lives.
Leaning Objectives: Attendees should be able to:
- Identify scope of problem gambling in active duty military and veteran populations
- Identify problem gambling risk factors for those serving in the military
- Adapt prevention, treatment and recovery strategies to best align with military and veteran groups
