NCPG Programs:

  • National Problem Gambling Helpline (800.522.4700): ensures local problem gambling help is just one call away anywhere in the US.  It is the only access to help in many states. 
  • National Conference on Problem Gambling: The oldest and largest annual conference of its kind.  Approximately 500 regulators, legislators, counselors, researchers, industry executives and recovering gamblers attend each year.  Specific in-depth training is provided for all aspects of the field and top researchers present their latest findings.  Up to 30 hours of Continuing Education Units may be earned over the 2-day Pre-Conference Workshops and 2-day Main Conference.  The location changes each year, hosted by a state Affiliate and offering each region of the country easy access on a rotating basis.
  • National Holiday Lottery Campaignencourages adults not to give lottery tickets to underage children/teens as holiday gifts - many problem gamblers report that they began gambling during childhood and this campaign aims to help prevent it.  In 2012, there were 37 U.S. and international lotteries participating.
  • Risk Education for Athletes Program (REAP): educates athletes of all ages about the personal and professional risks involved with gambling and how to be smart in risky situations. 
  • National Problem Gambling Awareness Month: Our annual nationwide grassroots campaign launches around ‘March Madness’ to educate healthcare providers and the public about problem gambling and practices of responsible gambling.
