With the number of gambling options in Arizona and the Southwest, treatment professionals undoubtedly encounter clients with gaming- and gambling-related issues. On November 7, 2012, Addiction Professional will bring together clinicians and policy makers from across Arizona to discuss treatment for gambling addiction.
