Several Pennsylvania Organizations to Participate in Problem Gambling Awareness Month


The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is working in conjunction with other state entities to promote Problem Gambling Awareness Month in March.

Throughout the month, the gaming control board’s Office of Compulsive and Problem Gambling will join the state Department of Drug and Alcohol, the Pennsylvania Lottery, the Council on Compulsive Gambling of Pennsylvania, and more to educate Pennsylvanians about gambling disorders while providing outreach and prevention options.

“The goal of Problem Gambling Awareness Month is to spotlight the issues and educate the general public about the warning signs of problem gambling, as well as raise awareness about treatment and other programs that are available both locally and nationally,” Elizabeth Lanza, director of the PGCB’s Office of Compulsive and Problem Gambling, said.

“It is important for the PGCB to raise awareness on the effects of gambling addiction and showcase what resources are available to help the citizens of Pennsylvania. The public needs to know that problem gambling tools are out there, and that gambling addiction treatment is not only available but has proven to be effective,” Lanza added.
