AbstractIn 1994, the Alberta Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission (AADAC) served notice of its intention to replicate a 1994 Alberta Lotteries and Gaming (now Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission) study on the prevalence of gambling and problem gambling among adult Albertans. The purpose in conducting this replication study was to assess changes in Alberta's gambling participation and problem gambling as part of a continuous review of AADAC's broad strategy for problem gambling. The purpose of this report is to highlight AADAC's response to the 1998 study findings. More specifically, the purpose of this report is threefold: 1. To summarize the main findings of the 1998 study; 2. To discuss the implications of the 1998 study findings for gambling prevention, treatment, training and further research; and 3. To outline AADAC's recommendations for gambling prevention, treatment, training, and further research.
