Bets Off Live Chat
CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
A program meant to help Iowans stop gambling is expanding.
The Iowa Department of Public Health announced today they are adding a live chat feature to the 1-800-BETS-OFF website.
During the work week between 8:00am and 8:00pm, visitors can click a link to talk to a trained problem gambling counselor.
Officials say nearly all Iowans report having gambled at some point in their lives.
12% say they have experienced at least one addiction symptom.
