The Council

We are here to help

The Rhode Island Council on Problem Gambling, together with other members of our community, is working to improve public awareness of problem gambling, and advocating for increased prevention, education, treatment and research activity to benefit the gambler, the gamblers family, and the community. Check the About Us page for information about our group members and activities.

In addition to providing Rhode Islanders with local information and helping resources, the Rhode Island Council on Problem Gambling is an affiliate of the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) and is therefore linked with the latest helpful information and initiatives on a national level as well.

We would love to hear from you 

Please let us know if you are interested in receiving gambling related pamphlet packets and what particular subjects you would need:   We have pamphlets on Problem Gambling for Seniors, College Students,  and/or Teens, but also other resources we would be interested in discussing with you.
