Thank you to Huther Doyle’s ECHO groups that invited us in to start the conversation around problem gambling and the ways it overlaps with other mental health and substance abuse issues.  We are excited to raise awareness on key screening tools that will hopefully normalize the conversation around gambling addiction.


We are so thrilled to provide a campus-wide presentation on the connection between problem gambling and mental health to faculty and staff at Binghamton University this February!  We will also have an opportunity to have a conversation with attendees as well to garner information on their needs in Broome County.


The Finger Lakes Region PGRC is a program of the New York Council on Problem Gambling, which is funded by the New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports.  The Finger Lakes PGRC is dedicated to addressing the issue of problem gambling within the Finger Lakes New York region through increasing public awareness and connecting those adversely affected with services that can help them.

The Finger Lakes PGRC is dedicated to the positive transformation of lives harmed by problem gambling. This vision of transformation includes individuals with a gambling problem as well as their families and communities. With a focus on supporting the individual and reducing barriers to care, the Finger Lakes PGRC is truly the premier organization providing problem gambling services in the Finger Lakes region of New York State.
