The NCPG is the national advocate for programs and services to assist problem gamblers and their families. Their mission is to increase public awareness of pathological gambling, ensure the widespread availability of treatment for problem gamblers and their families, and to encourage research and programs for prevention and education. As an advocate for problem gamblers, NCPG does not take a position for or against legalized gambling, but concentrates on the goal of helping those with gambling problems. Their 34-year history of independence and neutrality makes the National Council the most credible voice on problem gambling issues. They do not accept any restrictions on the use of contributions except as provided under Federal and state non-profit guidelines.


NCPG publishes a variety of materials on problem gambling, including newsletters, brochures, posters and other items, most available free of charge through National Problem Gambling Awareness Week (
