Problem Gambling Awareness

Gambling Comes with Risk

Problem gambling is any gambling, betting or wagering that causes family, financial, legal, emotional or other problems for the gambler, their family or others.

Problem gambling can have a negative effect on your life or the lives of people close to you: falling behind in school, missed work, arguments with family or friends, worrying about money lost and or time you are gone.

For people in recovery it can become even a bigger issue by acting as a replacing of a drug or substance. For elders, gambling of en lead to isolating and loss of a fixed income which started out as a social activity.

Problem Gambling Intervention

It can be as addictive as alcohol or drugs for some people. Problem gambling is a serious public health concern.

Tens of thousands of Oregon residents – including people in Tillamook County – suffer from problem gambling, as do their family, friends, employers, financial institutions and others in the larger community.
