A new series of videos are available on our website for treatment providers and the gamblers and family members affected by problem gambling. The videos include nationally recognized experts on addictions as well as New Mexico treatment providers.

The topics include:
– “ACEs: The Link Between Childhood Trauma, Brain Chemistry, and Addictions”: ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) has a direct correlation with the likelihood of issues for adolescents and adults. They are more prone to addictive behaviors as well as other health issues. Nationally recognized speaker, Frank Kros, MSW, JD, explains the tie between ACEs and compulsive gambling.
“Harm Reduction in Gambling”: Loreen Rugle, PhD, explains that research has shown gamblers may benefit from harm reduction techniques as opposed to trying to never gamble again. Daniel Blackwood, Director of The Evolution Group, covers information on how to approach harm reduction.
“Self Help Programs for Gambling”: the Gamblers Anonymous national spokesperson and treatment providers for compulsive gambling offer information on how self help programs work, what to expect, and how to get involved.
“Self Bans in Casinos”: New Mexico casinos all offer a self-ban program, where a gambler may choose to self-exclude from the property. Learn what to expect, how the self-bans may differ at various properties, and if this is an option you’d like to explore.
“Sports Betting”: Wagering on sports is now possible in many New Mexico casinos, and across the nation, is often available on apps on your smart phone. Learn the impact of sports betting, why it is perhaps more addictive than other types of gaming, and how to play responsibly.

The videos were produces by Edit House Productions, one of New Mexico’s leading video production companies. Edit House has worked with the Responsible Gaming Association since 2006.
