GREENE COUNTY PROBLEM GAMBLING WEBINAR – THE STATE OF PA

In October 2017 a major gambling expansion bill was passed in Pennsylvania, allowing for the possibility of more legalized gambling than ever before. Over the past couple of years, we have seen the launch of several new types of gambling, with more being made available soon. It is vital for treatment and prevention professionals to not only be aware of this expansion in order to better serve clients, but also to have a better understanding of the activities that may lead to new populations of clients.
