March 24th 1pm EST Problem Gambling Prevention: The Facts, Using Public Health Models, and Integrating Programing with Substance Misuse Prevention
March is Problem Gambling Awareness Month. With the legalization of sports betting in mid-Atlantic states as well as increased internet gambling due to COVID-19 restrictions, gambling has never been more accessible to youth and adults. Basic facts on youth and adult gambling will be discussed with emphasis on data from MD, DC, WV, DE, PA, and VA. Public health models will be used to show how problem gambling can be prevented and integrated with alcohol and substance misuse prevention programming.
