“Gambling is very common among college students. About 6% of students develop a gambling problem. Those in recovery from other addictions are at especially high risk. The Problem Gambling Help Network of West Virginia developed this video to highlight that sports betting isn’t all fun and games, and there is help if you cross the line into problematic gambling.” Watch Video
