NCPG Prevention Committee

The National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) Prevention Committee advocates for the inclusion of effective prevention services as part of the full continuum of care of problem gambling services through advocacy, awareness, education, and capacity building. Its principles regarding the prevention of gambling disorders are outlined in “Prevention of Gambling Disorders: A Common Understanding”.

The current goals of the Committee are: 1) to strengthen the problem gambling prevention community through recruitment, more effective communication and enhanced resource sharing, and 2) to advocate for, and support, the development and sustainability of infusing evidence-based prevention programs and models into alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) prevention and counseling programs.
