Intersections of Problem Gambling and Substance Misuse Prevention

Thursday, June 27th, from 1:00 PM ET to 3:00 PM EST (Virtual)


The prevalence of co-occurring gambling addiction and substance use is high. Approximately 1 in 10 compulsive gamblers report being concerned about their substance use, and research shows that people with a history of substance misuse are at higher risk for problem gambling. There is a complex relationship between problem gambling and substance misuse and a clear intersection between these two behavioral health issues. This training explores problem gambling concepts and terminology, the similarities and differences between problem gambling and substance misuse, implications for prevention and intervention strategies, as well as opportunities for collaboration between the substance misuse and problem gambling prevention fields. 


Competency Level: Intermediate 


Length: 2 hours 


Learning Objectives - At the end of this training, participants will be able to:

The Massachusetts Center of Excellence on Problem Gambling Prevention (MCOEPGP) provides capacity building, training and resource development services to address the prevention of problem gambling and related health issues such as the prevention of substance misuse, suicide and violence. The MCOE PGP approach is rooted in public health and utilizes the social-ecological model – incorporating the individual, family, and community – as a framework for its work. This approach is in alignment with evidence-based practices that require authentic community engagement, the use of an explicit equity lens and addressing the economic and social conditions that influence the health of people and communities, known as the social determinants of health.
