There appears to be an association between substance use and pathological gambling disorders in the research. This will present concerns for clinicians in substance use treatment programs as clients present with the co-occurring disorders. This exploratory study provides descriptive information learned from calls made to a problem gambling helpline by people reporting co-occurring substance use and gambling disorders. The information can be used by educators to inform students of the characteristics of this population.
