Gambling and Gaming Use Disorder: Got Skin in the Game

Utilizing a developmental approach to gaming/gambling addiction, this presentation will explore the risk of co-occurence between these disorders and ignite the question, “Is gaming use disorder becoming a gateway to gambling addiction?” This presentation will also provide effective evidenced based treatment modalities for gaming and gambling disorders. Finally, we will examine correlations between gambling/gaming addiction and intensified sugar consumption.
