Bonus Update Episode - When Gambling Takes Over

Access to make a bet just got so much easier in New York State. I am sure that you have seen a number of ads encouraging you to take a chance and bet on your favorite sports team. Addictive habits can form quickly especially when you add that together with ease of access. Remember that gambling is a slippery slope that can ruin someone financially, and destroy families, and relationships. We invited Jeffrey Wierzbicki and Angela DiRosa back (You can also listen to the original Episode 16) on TST to promote the services of the Western Problem Gambling Resource Center, to share more about the new trends they are seeing, and to remind us all of the common warning signs so you can support those that might be developing an addiction to gambling.
