OPGR launches revamped website to help Oregonians with gambling problem



The Oregon Problem Gambling Resource (OPGR) has revamped its website to help people with gambling problems. The website provides services and resources to help problem gamblers through a clean and uncluttered interface that incorporates improved functionality and enhanced content.

It acts as a platform to highlight resources available for the problem gamblers. The website provides multiple tools for visitors to access resources in their communities, as well as text or chat online with someone regarding help.

The OPGR.org website remodel was a collaboration between the Oregon Health Authority, local community problem gambling treatment and prevention providers, the Oregon Council on Problem Gambling, Voices of Problem Gambling, and the Oregon Lottery.

“The goal of the OPGR.org website is to educate the public about the risks associated with gambling behaviors,” said Oregon Lottery Associate Programme Manager Krystal Smith. “Additionally, the website helps improve the awareness of free treatment and recovery services available around the state of Oregon.”
