March 8 is Gambling Disorder Screening Day

Posted: February 18, 2016 in News

On March 8, 2016, the Cambridge Health Alliance’s Division on Addiction and Outpatient Addiction Services are launching a Gambling Disorder Screening Day as part of the Cambridge Health Alliance Readiness for Gambling Expansion (CHARGE) Initiative. The Division is helping the Cambridge Health Alliance launch a pilot screening program at its Outpatient Addiction Service, Somerville, Massachusetts, as well as other organizations in Massachusetts and across the nation.

We picked this date because March is National Problem Gambling Awareness Month. Brief screening for Gambling Disorder is an essential part of increasing awareness and helping people who have gambling problems.
