Gambling is normative behavior in most adults. Approximately 3% of gamblers will experience problems. Compulsive, problem or pathological gambling is often called the “hidden illness” because there are few of the outward signs and symptoms that may be present with alcoholism or other dependencies, and the biases that keep someone from seeking help can be greater as well. Colleagues, families and friends of problem gamblers are often shocked when they learn about a problem and how serious it has become. Often this comes up in the context of a legal matter. Lawyers and clients are affected by gambling addiction. Learn about problem gambling, how to recognize the signs and symptoms, what you can do, and what resources, including treatment, are available.
