Northeast PGRC

What’s New:

The Northeast Team is off to a busy start in 2019. We’ve been welcomed to meet with different organizations who are doing great work throughout our region.

We’d like to thank Janine Stuchin from the Saratoga Prevention Council for inviting our team to come and speak at the Saratoga County Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder stakeholders group at their monthly meeting in January.  There we discussed information about the PGRC and the services available to help those struggling with problem gambling in the community.

We would also like to thank Connie Wille, Nichole Christiansen and Jake Coloumbe from the Champlain Valley Family Center.  We spent time discussing programs and services they offer, and seeing how the PGRC can be an additional resource to identify those in need of problem gambling services and getting them the help they need.

If you’d like more information about problem gambling and the services available, please contact the the Northeast Problem Gambling Resource Center. We’re here to help!



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