Minnesota Northstar Problem Gambling Alliance Scholarship Recipient Shares Thoughts on National Conference on Problem Gambling

Jack Rivall, who is earning his license as a drug and alcohol counselor, received a scholarship from Northstar to attend the annual conference of the National Council on Problem Gambling in Tarrytown, NY, on July 14-15, 2016. Jack shared his thoughts about the experience.

“I am a young professional in the addictions field earning my license as a drug and alcohol counselor. Interestingly, this is the [state] credential required to provide services to problem gamblers. This is because problem gambling and the development of gambling disorder have been shown to have many common elements with the development of substance use disorders (chemical addictions). The 30th National Conference on Problem Gambling included people from many industries that came together to discuss what they have learned through research and experience. While there were many sessions across many topics to attend, my selections of workshops and lectures were geared toward the treatment and recovery aspects from problem gambling.”
