Saul Malek: How did your gambling addiction start in college?

Saul Malek is currently enrolled at Southern Methodist University, going for his Masters in mental health counseling with an anticipated graduation May 2024. He is hopeful to practice in the field of addictions counseling upon graduation. He has been invited to speak to the New York Times, St John’s School of Houston, and a plethora of addictions podcasts about his experiences in addiction and, more importantly, recovery. As a young person with over 3 years in recovery from compulsive gambling, he can sympathize with those struggling, at the same time letting them know that they are not alone and they can reclaim their lives.

In episode 316 of the Fraternity Foodie Podcast, we find out why Saul chose Trinity University for his undergraduate experience, what made him choose Phi Sigma Chi Fraternity, what he remembers from my program at Trinity University 5 years ago, how his gambling addiction started in college, how the gambling affected his reputation with family and friends, when he knew he hit rock bottom, what his message is to other college students who have started gambling, what he wants to do after graduation with a Masters in Mental Health Counseling, and some restaurant choices in Dallas, Texas.
