This straight-talking, empowering video program offers essential information on how problem gambling develops, its damaging impact on individuals and families, and how it can successfully be treated. Through candid first-hand accounts from four recovering gamblers, along with illuminating commentary from mental health experts, the program shows gamblers, their families, and professionals:

-- How an alluring diversion becomes a shameful secret as problem gambling takes hold
-- Common myths and misperceptions about gambling—and why "winning big" is so unlikely
-- The benefits of individual and group therapy and self-help approaches
-- Ways to overcome setbacks in recovery and make meaningful, lasting changes

"This DVD provides a comprehensive look at the downward spiral of problem gambling and the path to recovery. Interviews with gamblers reveal the allure, the misconceptions, and the behavior patterns that lead to excessive gambling—and its devastating effects. Experts provide commentary on the illogical thought patterns related to this disorder and dispel myths about the likelihood of winning large amounts of money. This program is a fitting teaching tool for students and counselors who want to know more about problem gambling, and for gamblers searching for hope and change."—Lia Nower, JD, PhD, Associate Professor and Director, Center for Gambling Studies, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

"Pathological gambling is a significant public health problem, yet few clinicians are experienced in treating it. This DVD provides a comprehensive overview along with detailed descriptions of some of the latest techniques for assessing and treating patients with gambling problems. Clinicians will benefit from this useful guide, and individuals who suffer from compulsive gambling and their loved ones will find much-needed support and information."—Nancy Petry, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Connecticut Health Center
