Description

Recent studies have shown that there has been a dramatic increase in impairment due to alcoholism, drug addiction and mental health disorders among members of the legal profession. The statistics are compelling and clearly indicate that 1 out of 3 attorneys will likely have a need for substance use or mental health services at some point in their careers.

What about that “other” addiction – Gambling ?

In 2018, the United States Supreme Court, in Murphy vs. NCAA, held that sports gambling was legal in all of the United States. By 2019, Pennsylvania had added on-line gambling accessible by cell phone, computer and tablets, thus becoming the second largest commercial gambling state outside of Nevada. With it came the compulsive gambler.

This program will explore not only Gambling Disorder, but also the connection between gambling and the more well -known forms of impairment and why lawyers are at higher risk to develop problems. This problem has only been exacerbated by the stress, anxiety and isolation caused by the Coronavirus crisis. The results are startling.
