The Wisconsin Council on Problem Gambling in collaboration with the National Council on Problem Gambling dedicate March as Problem Gambling Awareness Month (PGAM). The 2023 campaign theme is “Celebrating 20 Years.” Approximately 2 million (1%) of U.S. adults are estimated to meet criteria for pathological gambling, another 4-6 million (2-3%) would be considered problem gamblers; yet for many, gambling remains a hidden addiction.
This year the WCPG sent out over 600 packets of information to Wisconsin District Attorneys and Judges. View packet information
