The Nevada Council on Problem Gambling is an outstanding organization helping countless numbers of people impacted by Gambling Addiction. Carol O'Hare, Executive Director, and her team work hard to ensure that people understand there is a significant difference between recreational gambling and gambling because of an addiction. Because of thier efforts people do not have to face this difficult issue alone. Thank you to The Nevada Council on Problem Gambling for all they do!

The Nevada Council on Problem Gambling has guided my Northern Nevada problem gambling families to help at my non-profit, the Reno Problem Gambling Center, for the six years we have been operating and has helped hundreds of families around the state for decades. The Nevada Council has led the way in establishing and maintaining the best 24-hour help line for anyone needing an answer or urgent assistance, and has been the one place everyone can turn to for direction, data, support, advocacy, prevention, training, workforce development, guidance to Gamblers Anonymous and other resources and has led the way in the nation as the best state council dedicated to problem gambling in the entire country. I've been serving as an advisory member and now a Board member for nearly 10 years, and I know the dedication is the best any problem gambling family can hope for. Thank you, Nevada Council, and carry on!
