What’s New:

The Queens PGRC would like to thank the Far Rockaway Treatment Center for hosting the PGRC at their open house and information session.  We learned a lot about mental health programs in Queens and hope to help fill some gaps with problem gambling resources, education and treatment options.  We hope to work with this community in the future, offering assistance to individuals struggling with problem gambling, as well as family members affected by someone else’s gambling.



The Queens Problem Gambling Resource Center is a program of the New York Council on Problem Gambling, which is funded by the New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports.  The Queens PGRC is dedicated to addressing the issue of problem gambling in Queens through increasing public awareness and connecting those adversely affected with services that can help them.

The Queens Problem Gambling Resource Center is dedicated to the positive transformation of lives harmed by problem gambling. This vision of transformation includes individuals with a gambling problem as well as their families and communities. With a focus on supporting the individual and reducing barriers to care, the Queens PGRC is truly the premier center for providing problem gambling services in Queens, NY.
