Problem Gambling Resources in Wisconsin

March is Problem Gambling Awareness Month

For the nineteenth year, Wisconsin Council on Problem Gambling, in collaboration with the National Council on Problem Gambling, dedicates the month of March to helping people. The campaign theme “Awareness + Action” is all about taking specific action and having conversations about problem gambling issues and directing people to the help they may need. Approximately 2 million U.S. adults (1% of the population) are estimated to meet criteria for gambling disorder. Another 4-6 million (2-3%) are considered to meet criteria for problem gambling. And yet for many residents of the US, gambling remains a hidden addiction.
