Screening Tool

There are tools designed to measure the severity of a gambling addiction. One of which is the Problem Gambling Severity Index (PGSI). You may have already completed this but for those of you who have not come across it you can attempt it below. It was designed by Ferris and Wynne in 2001. 

It has nine components and each component is scored on a four-point scale. The options are never, sometimes, most of the time, almost always. Responses to each question below will gain the following scores. 

Never - 0 

Sometimes - 1

Most of the Time - 2

Almost Always - 3 

When the scores are calculated a total score will range from 0 to 27.
