Happy New Year to all our readers and those who are new to our webpage. We are hoping that 2022 will bring you everything that you hope for yourself and more. January introduces us to a new beginning and celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. MLK’s message was for equality. He believed that no matter who you are or what your circumstance is, you should be treated fairly with dignity. His message was geared toward the racial and social-economic issues in this country, we could also use those lessons of equality and equity when it comes to addiction. Often, people who struggle with mental health issues or addiction are looked at differently. Here at the New York Council on Problem Gambling, we work hard to value every person; those within the organization, those who need help, those who partner with us, and everyone in between. As Dr. King said, “It is the time to stand up for equality, the time is now to be there for your neighbor in need, and the time is now to show someone you care”.
If you or a loved one is struggling with problems with gambling please call or text us at 914-215-6440.
