National Problem Gambling Awareness Week

Post by tammy rigsby » Mon Dec 29, 2008 10:11 am

The Florida Council on Compulsive Gambling (FCCG) is joining forces with organizations across the state in preparation for National Problem Gambling Awareness Week (NPGAW), March 1-7, 2009. As the state designated authority on gambling addiction, we are inviting you to join us in raising public awareness about the effects of pathological (commonly referred to as compulsive) gambling.

Governor Charlie Crist has signed a proclamation endorsing Problem Gambling Awareness in Florida, with this year’s focus on Crime and Violence. Governor Crist, along with FCCG staff, board members and partners, are urging individuals, professionals, and organizations who are dedicated to reducing crimes of domestic violence and crimes against businesses to participate in spreading the message of hope that gambling addiction is treatable for those who seek help.
