Gambling Addiction Services
Whether your gambling involves lottery tickets, casino games, horse racing or sports betting, slot machines, or video lottery terminals (VLTs), a gambling addiction can cause serious harm to you and your loved ones.
Two signs of a gambling addiction are:
- You cannot control the amount of time and money you are spending.
- You continue to gamble even though it is causing harm to your family, career or bank account.
