The NYS Problem Gambling Training Partnership (PGTP) is a program of the New York Council on Problem Gambling, funded by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services. In an effort to expand access to care for those struggling with problem gambling in NYS, the New York Council on Problem Gambling (NYCPG) provides training and support to mental health and addiction practitioners throughout the state. The National Association of Social Workers – New York State assists NYCPG in the coordination of training events, recruitment and continuing education for training participants.
Increasing Access to Care for Problem Gamblers in NYS
The Problem Gambling Training Partnership aims to increase the number of mental health professionals trained in the assessment and treatment of problem gambling and gambling disorder. Through participation in the NYS Problem Gambling Training Partnership, New York State licensed mental health practitioners with a private practice may opt to be considered part of the Problem Gambling Treatment Referral List. Attendance at a Problem Gambling Training Partnership Conference is the first step in the process to become eligible to be listed on the NYS Problem Gambling Referral List.
