I am an addiction counselor for the state of Nevada. I came to know about Nevad Council on Problem Gambling when I was working on my certification as a problem gambing counselor. The staff were so encouraging and helpful to work with me so that I could pursue my certification and work in the field. I attended educational courses to build-up my hours and was educated by Carol on how gambling is an addictive disorder. NCPG has great video and reading materials for everyone, and is a place that anyone can go to for more information on complusive gambling.
In 2001, when the Nevada Council was asked to assist with the development of a Problem Gambling Assessment for the Clark County Family Court (the first of its kind), the Council stepped up and came through with a successful testing tool and network provider list. Over a decade later, the Problem Gambling Assessment is still being widely utilized by the Family Court, thanks to the Council.
