Welcome to this very special episode with Eddie and Derek, two police officers who have each struggled with a gambling addiction. Shirley Hoak is a certified gambling counselor who has worked with both men. In this episode guided by Shirley, Eddie and Derek are each able to talk openly about what has worked to abstain from gambling and succeed in recovery. The stress of being a first responder and specifically a police, is certainly a breeding ground to create addictions, having these two officers share their story is helpful to reduce the stigma about asking for help.
Please listen and learn from those who know. A better life without gambling.
