Problem Gambling & Latino Communities Posted On
Gambling addiction affects people all over the world regardless of their age, ethnicity or income. In Latino communities, problem gambling causes serious consequences for many individuals who are reluctant to seek treatment and support.
We need to raise awareness of problem gambling within Latino communities, and make sure people know that resources are available to help them recover. With your help, we can educate people about addiction. We can speak about its warning signs and its causes, and we can teach people how to help prevent it. We can help people understand that support for problem gambling is available, whether you are worried about your gambling or the gambling of a family member or friend.
KnowTheOdds is excited to announce the release of our latest e-book, “Latino Communities & Problem Gambling.”
Within, you’ll find information about topics such as:
- The definition of problem gambling
- What common gambling methods are within Latino communities
- How problem gambling is influenced by cultural traditions
- What puts many Latinos at risk for problem gambling
- The consequences of problem gambling for Latinos and their communities
- Where you can find help for problem gambling
- How we can raise awareness about problem gambling within Latino communities
We want people to know that problem gambling affects thousands of people – it’s okay to ask for help. We want people to know that being a Spanish speaker shouldn’t be a barrier to getting help for problem gambling. We want people to find the help they need to recovery and live a life filled with healthy activities after they stop gambling.
