"Finding Meaning in Medicine" ~ "Gambler Healing"

Wednesday, September 12 – The Gamechanger Ideas Festival began last week in Grand Forks.  It continues in Bismarck starting tonight, with an impressive lineup of events and guest speakers. Joining us is Kayla Schmidt of Humanities North Dakota, and Dr. Dhruv Khullar, one of the presenters. His talk is titled, “Finding Meaning in Medicine." ~~~ Problem gambling is an underreported addiction. Addiction professions say embarrassment can prevent addicts from seeking help. Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota launched Gambler Healing: The 12 Steps to Gambling Addiction Recovery, an online program. LSSND hopes the ease and anonymity of following the program online with lead to more people coming forward for help. We learn more from LSSND counselor Lisa Vig.
