Description

CLE: Stigma and Professional Impacts in the Treatment of Gambling Disorder

Gambling disorder is recognized as a diagnosable and treatable addictive disorder and is included in the same classification as substance use disorders in the DSM 5.  In theory, this recognition should lead to increased access to treatment and greater understanding of the problem gambler’s ability to achieve and maintain recovery.  In reality, individuals who seek treatment for a gambling disorder often face conflicting employment policies and potential consequences that can negatively impact their professional lives. The application of relevant laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act and the HIPAA Privacy Rule, will be analyzed.

This session will examine the stigma of problem gambling and its impact on professionals seeking treatment.
