MARCH IS PROBLEM GAMBLING AWARENESS MONTH!

PGAM is a grassroots campaign that depends on the participation of NCPG state Affiliate, organizational and individual members, state health agencies, gambling companies, recovery groups and a wide range of healthcare organizations and providers.  2019 is the 15th year for this event. Groups across America hold conferences, air Public Service Announcements, provide counselor training, host screening days, run social media campaigns and many other activities to increase public awareness of problem gambling and the availability of prevention, treatment & recovery services.

 

The 2019 PGAM theme is “Awareness + Action”  #AwarenessPlusAction

 

The goals of this national campaign are:

To increase public awareness of problem gambling and the availability of prevention, treatment & recovery services. To encourage healthcare providers to screen clients for problem gambling.

Recent Testimony

 

HELP BY STATE

The National Council on Problem Gambling has developed this list as a starting point for those seeking help or information about gambling problems. Problem gambling is a rare but chronic mental disorder and is treatable. But without help, a gambling problem may get worse. The information compiled below by NCPG is intended to be a starting point for individuals to learn more about problem gambling — it is not a complete list of information or services. We encourage you to ask questions, gather information and conduct research on the type of help that is most appropriate for your situation.

Use the map to view problem gambling resources in each state. Please select a state by clicking on your state or visit our page for each state listed: https://www.ncpgambling.org/help-treatment/help-by-state/
