Summary
North America has more than 15 million compulsive gamblers, 4.2 million of whom have attempted suicide. But in a society where gambling is a legal form of entertainment and where there is no consensus on its addictive power, what hope do sufferers have for help before it is too late? This penetrating program explores the insidious appeal of the new generation of video gambling machines, the efforts of counselors and support groups to assist victims in rebuilding their lives, and the role of government as a silent partner in this debilitating industry. First-person accounts from recovering compulsive gamblers tell of obsession, lying, and stealing, and how they have learned to come to terms with their actions
