Long Island PGRC

What’s New:

Hello Long Island!

Summer is almost here and we couldn’t be more excited about all that it will bring.

We had a great time speaking with the Suffolk County School Administrators about Problem Gambling among young people.  We look forward to working together to help youth understand the warning signs of problem gambling.

We also were honored to meet the staff at Seafield Outpatient facility in Riverhead and learn about the great work they are doing for those in need as well as provide them with information on how to refer those seeking treatment specifically for problem gambling.
