A takeaway for those who missed George Mladenetz's Intensive Seminar is many people living with addiction say the stigma they face is worse than the illness itself. We can help to remove that barrier by NOT USING LANGUAGE that perpetuates the feeling of being stigmatized.

    Milestone Centers in Pittsburgh, PA is raising awareness in March for Problem Gambling Awareness Month. This public service video was produced with the help of deaf and hard of hearing clients and staff from Milestone's Integrative Services program.
    So the spouse/former spouse of a "problem gambler" is "better off" dead. Just got hit with something else to "cope with" ... while the problem gambler has still been gambling. The government let him "get away" scot-free in the divorce he filed ... I guess the government is an "enabler" and why not? When problem gamblers keep state coffers full ... despite the costs to others. Advocacy ... where?
