Slots & Shots: Gambling Resources for AOD Workers

23 November 2015

Slots and Shots is a much needed suite of gambling resource for alcohol and other drug workers. It contains a tri-fold client handout, waiting room poster, a report, and a wallet sized quick reference reminder for clinicians. 

The resource was developed to help AOD workers address the complex problems often experienced by their clients, and highlights the similarities between problem gambling and substance misuse. 

Many AOD clients present with co-occurring substance and gambling problems. For every client with a serious gambling problem, 5 to 10 other people are affected. As such, there is a pressing need to strengthen AOD workers’ skills and understanding of gambling, so they may respond appropriately to client needs and improve client outcomes. 

It was developed by NCETA, SANDAS, and Odyssey House Victoria. The resource was launched by the Victorian Gambling Research Foundation on 19 November 2015.
