Queens PGRC

What’s New:

The Queens PGRC would like to thank Beth Covelli and the Queens Consortium on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse (QCASA). Besides being in private practice, Beth is the former Director of Outreach, and a tireless advocate who continues to work as Director of the Queens Symposium, an organization consisting of Queens-based substance abuse providers and many importantly related agencies such as OASAS, the Dept. of Education and the District Attorney’s Office. This monthly meeting has provided us with immeasurable networking and outreach opportunities as well as a valuable professional fellowship for which we are grateful.



The Queens PGRC is a program of the New York Council on Problem Gambling.  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 PGRC 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.
