NYCPG Launches VSE Support Program

Voluntary Self-Exclusion (VSE) programs are available in New York State to help individuals experiencing problems related to casino gambling and sports betting. Through VSE, you can voluntarily exclude yourself from either or both activities for a predetermined amount of time. This is a helpful tool for individuals seeking to address their gambling behaviors.

We are proud to share that NYCPG is now offering free support to help folks complete the VSE process. If you want to learn more about VSE and how it can help you, please contact us at 518-903-0217 or send an email to [email protected]. We are here to provide you with the necessary information and guidance to make the most of this program.
