Abstract: *NOTE: TABLE OF CONTENTS AND OVERVIEW ONLY* The stated purpose of this study was to increase the understanding of problem gamblers and to determine the focus of developing programs. The study is based on a survey of 156 aboriginal adults living in Alberta, who are currently problem gamblers. The study describes the samples demographic characteristics, as well as social characteristics such as alcohol and drug use. The authors found that those with the most severe gambling problems were also those who spent more time and money gambling, gambled to be alone and forget problems, felt nervous about the money they spent, gambled earlier, knew others with gambling problems, had been in trouble with the law, had sought help, lived on the reserve and had attended residential schools.
