What’s New:

Summer is officially here! We’re so excited to tell you about the opportunities we’ve had recently to get the word out about our PGRC services.  

We would like to thank the Saratoga Springs Public Library for inviting our Program Managers, Amy McBride and Robin Fetterman, to be interviewed as a part of their Community Conversations series. If you missed it, you can check it out HERE.  

Our friends at Second Chance Opportunities, Inc. partnered with us to host our very first virtual problem gambling training called – The 5 W’s of Problem Gambling. Thank you to the staff and attendees for making this event a success. We are hoping to provide this and other trainings virtually for others as well. If you’re interested in having a virtual problem gambling presentation, please contact our Team Leader Brandy Richards at 

Did you know that the Northeast PGRC is one of seven Problem Gambling Resource Centers across New York State? No matter where you are, there is help available for problem gambling. Check out our PGRC video to see who we are and where we are located! 

We are continually looking to expand our network of Problem Gambling Treatment Specialists across our 15county region. If you are a private practitioner interested in helping those with a gambling disorder, contact the Northeast PGRC today. Free training and professional development are provided. For more information call 518-801-1491 or email us at 

Be well!
