On this week’s show, we talk to Chris Gray, Executive Director of the Indiana Council on Problem Gambling about the expansion of gambling in Indiana and how that affects Hoosiers.
The Indiana Council on Problem Gambling strives to generate awareness, promote education, and be an advocate for quality treatment of problem gamblers in the State of Indiana. The ICPG was founded in 1996 by a group of individuals and organizations whose goal was to ensure that help was available for problem gamblers in a time of increasing types of legalized gambling in Indiana. The ICPG seeks to work with all individuals and organizations involved in gaming activities that address problem gambling in Indiana. The Council believes that success will result from these partnerships. Their website is indianaproblemgambling.org/. If you or a loved on may have an issue with gambling, please call the Indiana Problem Gambling Help Line number for more information (800) 994-8448.
