Product Information:

Name: Problem Gambling: Assessing for and Making Plans for Reduction
Description: The goal of this brochure is to make information available regarding the description of gambling problems, how to briefly assess for gambling problems, and what steps can be taken to curtail the further development and continuation of gambling problems. The brochure utilizes information from the Shortened South Oaks Gambling Screen as well as the DSM-5. This highly accessible and easily transportable information will not only allow providers to conduct quick, on-site assessments within any type of Veteran-utilized clinic, it will also help educate providers and Veterans alike about whether a gambling problem may exist.
