Mid-Hudson PGRC

What’s New:

The Mid-Hudson team has been hitting the road, learning about all the resources within the Mid-Hudson region. We had the opportunity to visit one of our local Addiction Treatment Centers with our counterparts in the Northeast Region.  The Richard C. Ward Treatment Center is providing impressive treatment services to the residents of New York State.  We thank them for their hospitality and willingness to treat those with problem gambling challenges.  Many thanks to the CAPE coalition for welcoming us into their space and giving us the opportunity to share who we are. We would also like to thank Catholic Charities in Monticello and Student Assistant Services for their hospitality and educating us on the services they provide.

As we continue to build our network of community resources, our program managers have been recruiting and on boarding clinicians to be of service to the region.  We thank those clinicians who are already on board, and welcome others to join.

The Mid-Hudson team would like to thank everyone who has helped with opening of the resource center and we look forward to collaborating with you in the near future.



The Mid-Hudson Region PGRC is a program of the New York Council on Problem Gambling.  The Mid-Hudson PGRC is dedicated to addressing the issue of problem gambling within the Mid-Hudson New York region through increasing public awareness and connecting those adversely affected with services that can help them.
