According to New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS), Problem Gambling is known as the “hidden addiction” because there are little to no visible signs. However, the effects of gambling addiction are apparent. Problem Gambling can ruin family ties, destroy relationships, and end careers.
