About Us

Since 1972, NCPG has led state and national stakeholders in the development of comprehensive policies and programs for all those affected by problem gambling. Our vision is to improve health and wellness by reducing the personal, social and economic costs of problem gambling.

Vision and Mission

From the outset NCPG established two principles that remain in effect today: that the organization would be the advocate for those affected by problem gambling and that it would take no position for or against legalized gambling.
