This can cause debts, loss of jobs, and extreme personal and family hardships.
Most people think that gambling too often is a bad habit. But in reality, being unable to control gambling is a medical condition that needs to be treated, and help is available. To learn more about problem gambling and The Maryland Center of Excellence on Problem Gambling, click here.
