Funded by OASAS, the Problem Gambling Resource Centers (PGRCs) are programs of the New York Council on Problem Gambling (NYCPG). These PGRCs are the regional hubs for connecting local communities to problem gambling information and services. Please visit NYProblemGamblingHELP.org to learn more about the PGRC in your region.
Each PGRC works with a network of private practitioners that have been vetted and trained by the NYCPG. Focusing on the needs of each individual struggling with problem gambling, PGRC staff aim to connect these individuals to the support and services that best suits them.
