Abstract:     
Gambling is increasing in our society, and the courts cannot ignore the medically recognized mental disorder of pathological gambling that is likely the root cause of a number of crimes and social ills. Therapeutic justice can be an important way for society to look at these problems. Incarcerating compulsive gamblers without identification of their problems does not help the criminal or society as a whole. Drug courts throughout the nation and the gambling court in NY can serve as models for future gambling courts.
