Mid-Hudson PGRC

What’s New:

The Mid-Hudson PGRC continues to be amazed by the work that is happening the different communities in the region.  The members of our team have been meeting with various organizations that provide treatment services for problem gambling in our region.  Would like to thank Smart Recovery in Westchester County and the Regional Addiction Resource Center.

We appreciate the New Paltz Community Center for welcoming us.  We learned about all the great work they are doing around suicide prevention.  We also learned all the creative ways they are engaging the parents on how to use prevention tools with youth.  We look forward to collaborating with them in the future.

We are excited to be able to partner with the Warwick Community Center and Coalition. We look forward to speaking during their summer youth leadership program with youth about problem gambling. We thank them for inviting us to participate in their Break the Stigma Walk at the end of the month.

We would like to thank the Orange County DA for welcoming us to learn about problem gambling.  It is great to hear that their judicial system is looking into problem gambling as an addiction an individual can struggle with, and ways to improve the system by providing treatment programs instead of jail.

We thank the Mid-Hudson regional communities for helping us learn and grow.  We are grateful for the support and generosity.
