JPHSA Gambling Services
Author: Henry R. Lesieur, PhD
A concise overview of addictive gambling. This Understanding Compulsive Gambling pamphlet clearly describes both the emotional progression and the effects of compulsive gambling on our lives, finances, and families. Personal stories demonstrate that change is possible through programs such as Gamblers Anonymous.
“Pathological gambling is a disease, one that is often hidden. It affects not only the victim, but the victim’s family, friends, and co-workers. In this pamphlet, an expert explains the emotional dependency and loss of control that come with compulsive gambling. Dr. Lesieur explains the theories and phases of the disease, discusses signs of trouble, and lists resources for further help.”
