We hope that this site will help problem gamblers and their families find recovery through education and information. We are able at this point to share three assessments for a problem gambler to review to check the level of their problem.
I have provided three assessments for you to take to see how much of a problem your gambling really is for you. These assessments are used by professionals, either one alone or all three together, to initially assess and diagnose problem or compulsive/pathological gamblers:
…and here is a test for family and friends of gamblers: Family Screen
If after taking these assessments you score as either a problem or compulsive/pathological gambler seek support through counseling or Gamblers Anonymous.
• Lane County, Oregon: Problem Gambling Prevention
• Oregon's Department of Human Services Addiction Services: Problem Gambling
• Help for family and friends of a compulsive gambler: Gam-Anon.org
• Help available in multipl languages: Gamb-Ling.com
• Find local counseling through The National Gambling Helpline: 1-800-522-4700
This workbook is designed for use in therapy with a counselor, or for a gambler's own use and exploration. It's a great tool for mental health professionals, psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, social workers, licensed professional counselors, chemical dependency counselors, veterans, Gamblers Anonymous members, or counseling for any other addictions.
