Gambling Harms and Desire for Treatment: Evidence from Two Surveys in Massachusetts
December 1, 2020 EST @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFREE
This webinar presents new analyses of data from two population surveys carried out prior to the opening of any casinos in the Commonwealth. The webinar focuses on experiences of gambling harm in major life areas and then moves to explore desire for treatment among people experiencing gambling problems in Massachusetts. Experiences of harm and desire for treatment varied across major demographic groups, including gender, age, race/ethnicity, and whether respondents had children in their household. The results of the study will be of interest to clinicians treating problematic gambling as well as to a broader audience of stakeholders interested in the impacts of gambling in Massachusetts.
