KnowTheOdds: New Website – Same Problem Gambling Mission Posted On

If you’ve visited our website in the past, you’re probably noticing that things look a little different here now. We wanted to make our site easier to explore and better display our resources, so today, we’ve launched a brand new website!

We hope you like it! Take a look around our new site, and let us know what you think. If you’re new to learning about problem gambling, our ‘What is Problem Gambling’ page is a great place to start. You’ll find information about what can cause problem gambling, including surprising statistics in the U.S. You’ll also learn about how Gambling Disorder is characterized in the DSM-5, published by the American Psychiatric Association.

Explore our Resources page, where you’ll find ebooks, infographics and videos pertaining to problem gambling and its impact on gamblers and their loved ones. And please, if you think someone would benefit from viewing any of our resources, share them with your friends and family! We’ll also provide regular updates on the blog, like the post you’re reading right now.

If you need to find help for your gambling or the gambling of a loved one, browse the NYS Gambling Support Directory, and quickly access the NYS HOPEline (1-877-8-HOPENY).

We Need To Raise Awareness About Problem Gambling

While our appearance has changed, our mission has not. KnowTheOdds, sponsored by the New York Council on Problem Gambling, seeks to increase public awareness about problem gambling. In doing so, we hope to create dialog between those hurt by problem gambling and those advocating for support and treatment. We understand that problem gambling touches people of all cultures and professions, impacting adults, teens and children. We strive to provide resources and information to help all those affected.

Thanks for reading, and we welcome you to explore our previous posts, all organized by topic. Together, we can educate our communities about problem gambling, and help those who are affected find treatment and support.
