What’s New:

September is Recovery Month! All month long across New York State our teams have been working to highlight recovery stories. We are inspired by those who share about their own addictions and journey to healing.

Our own Mid-Hudson PGRC, in their latest episode of The Hidden Addiction Podcast, interviewed Dr. Sandra Adell and Karen Lee Reddick. Both women are in recovery from gambling addiction, and are creating spaces for other black women to share their stories.

Here on Long Island partners have gathered for walks, memorials, trainings and celebrations. Our stories have power and where we gather and share them, we bring to light the struggles of others.

Learn more about Gambling Addiction by signing up for emails from our Training Center.

 

We asked Clinician Brandon Tosov why he was interested in supporting clients in recovery from Gambling Addiction. Here’s what he said…..

“I became interesting in serving individuals impacted by gambling after realizing the positive impact a single person’s motivation to change can make. I have had both personal and professional experiences with problem gambling, as well as other addictions. I have been able to see both the negative effects it has on the individual and their families, while also having the privilege to see the positives that can come out of someone working towards positive change.
