Disabilities and its Links to Problem Gambling

Problem gambling is a public health concern and is comprised of a spectrum consisting of multiple levels of gambling problems, from at-risk gambling to gambling disorders. Research suggests that individuals with a disability may be at increased risk of having or developing a gambling problem. It is important that those who have a disability, their family members, and professionals working with this population be aware of warning signs of problem gambling (PG) and the resources available for help. There are positive and significant associations between disordered gambling and substance use, mood, anxiety, and personality disorders.
