Gambling

Studies indicate that there is an estimated 1% of the US population who meet the pathological gambling criteria set forth in the DSM-IV and another 2-3% who, while not meeting the full diagnostic criteria as a pathological gambler, have experienced one or more problems as a result of their gambling. Studies also show that within forensic populations the percentage of problem gamblers increases by 1-5%. Counseling For Change has employed this evidence in implementing a full range of recovery services for clients with problem gambling needs. Currently, CFC has five counselors who are trained in gambling treatment.
