Don’t know any problem gamblers? It is likely you do. Problem Gambling is devastating our families and burdening the State’s healthcare, criminal and civil justice systems–an estimated 380,000 problem gamblers and $336 million dollars per year in economic costs (Georgia State University publication, 2010 Fact Sheet).
