Did you know that over 5 million Americans meet the criteria for gambling addiction? 

It’s a startling statistic, especially when only a fraction of those people seek help. That’s why The National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) is raising awareness for problem gambling this March with National Problem Gambling Awareness Month (PGAM).

2016’s theme is Have the Conversation (#HaveTheConvo). Get the facts before you start a conversation by checking out the fact sheets, infographics and more offered by the NCPG.

DePaul’s National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence- Rochester Area (NCADD-RA) and the New York Council on Problem Gambling (NYCPG) also offer free tool kits, infographics and ads:
