March is problem gambling awareness month

Posted by Kirk Nesset on Mar 5, 2019 12:42:49 PM

Annually the month of March provides an opportunity to focus on an aspect of gambling that doesn’t always come to light for many people when you think about gambling or the gaming industry.  Each year thousands of Iowan’s across the state seek out help for a gambling related issue. Many of those calls that come in are not just from the gambler, but from those that have been impacted by a problem gambler (concerned person).  Unlike with alcohol or substance abuse, a gambling addiction can and in most cases go on for a much longer period of time, allowing the disease to take hold of not only the individual but also the people around them and their community.  Problem Gambling Awareness Month is an opportunity for agencies like Prelude to join with the Governor’s office to focus on providing additional awareness within the areas they serve and work with their local casino to promote responsible gaming.
