It’s All Fun and Games Until…. Gaming and Gambling Addiction Awareness

Date: July 11, 2024
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Summertime is here and idle time means more opportunity to do what many love most – gaming. Or is it gambling?

Join us as we hear from experts from the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health, Don McCourtney and Anne Rogers, to learn how to differentiate a hobby from a problem.

Participants will learn:

  • Warning signs for problem gambling
  • Pathways of problem gambling
  • How to identify and discuss the withdrawal symptoms of problem gambling
  • Differences between substance use disorder and problem gambling
  • Self-deceptions, and risk and protective factors

Presenters:

  • Don McCourtney, Lead Problem Gambling Coordinator for Office of Recovery Services with the Department of Behavioral Health Developmental Services (DBHDS)
  • Anne Rogers, Problem Gambling Prevention Coordinator for the Office of Behavioral Health Wellness in DBHDS
