The Center For Problem Gambling

The Center for Problem Gambling provides counseling and support services to individuals who need help with their gambling problem. We provide a full range of services, including:

  • Individual counseling
  • Gambling recovery groups
  • Couples and family counseling
  • Support groups for significant others
  • Outreach and education
  • Gamblers Anonymous (GA) meetings

We have been funded by New York State since 1996, and are committed to serving all those in need. Treatment is confidential and provided regardless of a person’s ability to pay. Our gambling counselors have significant experience working with problem gambling, and include therapists who are Nationally Certified Gambling Counselors.

As the largest gambling treatment center in the Capital Region, we maintain a working relationship with the New York Council on Problem Gambling. We are also collaborating with researchers from the Department of Psychology at the University at Albany. Our Center is the site of a clinical research trial on state-of-the-art treatment for compulsive gambling, which is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health.
