I have been fortunate that Carol O has been part of my life and recovery for over 16 years now. Her service and the work of the NV Council on Problem Gambling has been serving the Vegas community tirelessly since I became aware of it back in1996. The reach of their work has opened the door for many problem gamblers to get help and suport. Please give of your time or your resources as you can.

The Nevada Council on Problem Gambling has given me the initial education on my journey to become a Gambling Counselor. I recieved 30 hours of training at the council with fine educators in the field of gambling counselors. They continue to provide additional material to further my education and the communities on the disease of problem gambling. I am extremely grateful that they are in town to provide resources to help problem gamblers and carry the message throughout the State of Nevada.

Helped with general office and mailing. At time had 14 years of abstinence now have almost 22. Despite my extensive meetings and literature consumed learned so much more! I know that the casino industry is VERY grateful for the help and guidance they have received from the council and I can state emphatically that those involved are both very caring and competent and professional

Before I became involved with the Nevada Council on Problem Gambling; in fact before I even knew who they were, I knew their work as they provide all of the "When the Fun Stops" brochures and posters in all Nevada Casinos. This ONE tool alone makes them a GREAT non-profit! By posting these pamphlets at every casino, problem gamblers know that Help Is Available! In addition to this, the Nevada Council provides terriffic resources to educate employers, the public, family members and the problem gambler about the disease of compulsive gambler and solutions/help available for all impacted by the disease. I am now proud to be affiliated with the Council as a volunteer. Their annual conference is THE source for current information on disordered gambling, treatment, studies, legal issues and a myriad of topical information on this serious public health issue. I am proud to be associated with the council and will continue to give back to this organization that has so positively impacted my life and that of many others.

The Nevada Council on Problem Gambling has been a fantastic resource for me to find information on problem gambling and how it can affect individuals, their families, co-workers, and their communities. They have provided me with excellent materials and advice that are useful in conducting public outreach and awareness on this devastating illness, including how one can get help and what treatment options are available. Thank you for everything you do!
