People who delve into gambling sometimes find it's a seductive path fraught with greed and compulsion. Those same people often struggle with depression or anxiety. In turn, alcohol and drug use can manifest with the gambler as a form of coping. On today's edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson talks with Kristen Haflett, a licensed clinical social worker who specializes in gambling addictions. They discuss how 87% of gambling addicts who seek recovery can "fall off the wagon." While the odds are against them, with God, recovery is possible.
