ABSTRACT

Compulsive Gambling: Background Information for Security Personnel   [open pdf - 2MB]

"This study of compulsive gambling pulls together in one place information useful to personnel security policy-makers, practitioners, and researchers when reviewing standards and procedures, establishing priorities or developing training programs. It focuses on the potential impact of compulsive gambling on U.S. Government security, the growth of gambling in the United States, the prevalence of a small percentage of problem gamblers among the general gambling population, indicators for identifying these problem gamblers, and the relationship between compulsive gambling and other addictions. It also discusses legal considerations and treatment results that may be relevant to adjudication decisions."
