Problem gambling is being addressed today during a Problem Gambling Prevention Training workshop in Mansfield. Professionals in the mental health, and drug and alcohol treatment fields, are learning how to identify and help someone who's spending too much money on the long-shot of winning big. Tracee Anderson, director of Community Action for Capable Youth (CACY), says the training was made possible through a grant from the state's share of revenue from the casinos. And Derek Longmeier, Program Manager for the Columbus-based Drug Free Action Alliance, says there are tell-tale signs of a gambling problem such as a pre-occupation with it, borrow money you can't afford to pay back, and stealing money. A public meeting on problem gambling is next Tuesday from 4:30 to 6:30pm at the Longview Center at 1495 West Longview Avenue in Mansfield.
