National Conference on Problem Gambling – July 21 & 22, 2017

National Conference on Problem Gambling
July 21-22, 2017 Portland, Oregon

I have attended many National Conferences on Problem Gambling over the last 8 years – when I moved from “anonymity to advocacy.” This conference is rich in resources and the latest research on problem gambling – as well as treatment and advocacy information.  I’m happy to report that the National Council on Problem Gambling has proactively encouraged involvement of the recovery community in their programming.  This is so important, as the Recovery Community provides first hand knowledge that goes hand-in-hand with research and treatment.

At the 2016 conference, the National Conference on Problem Gambling invited folks in recovery to serve as “Recovery Ambassadors.”  Ambassadors were easily identified by special buttons provided for the event. Each morning there was an “open” Gamblers Anonymous meeting – for those in recovery and those who wanted to experience a meeting firsthand.  For this year’s event, the National Council on Problem Gambling requested presentations from the recovery community and will be offering at least 5 presentations from individuals in recovery.  We applaud this new, focused initiative with special attention paid to the community the Council serves!
