For some, a game; for others, a full-time job
 
Four prominent experts in gambling addiction will speak on addiction as a family problem, intervention, and the social and spiritual aspects of recovery. They will be supplemented by the captivating guitar music of a speaker who has a personal story to tell about gambling addiction. Lunch will be provided at no charge.
