Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) has launched the Iowa Gambling Treatment programme to help problem gamblers in the state, ahead of the holiday season.

Eric Preuss, manager of the programme described its objectives:

“Gambling problems are hard to talk about. Family and friends may not know how to help the person they care about and the problem gambler may feel alone or ashamed about their situation.”

The programme also intends to make help members or loved ones learn strategies to tackle problem gambling.

IDPH has started a Help Desk that works round the clock. It can be accessed by simply dialing 1-800-BETS OFF or visiting the YourLifeIowa.org website for services through secure chat or text.
