Oregon Lottery Announces March as Problem Gambling Awareness Month

Friday, March 04, 2016

 

The month of March is observed as Problem Gambling Awareness Month to help raise awareness of problem gambling issues in Oregon.

The Oregon lottery partners with the Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon Council on Problem Gambling to raise awareness of the availability of Oregon's free and confidential treatment for those in need and to get the word out about the resources available to the public.

"For many years, the Oregon Lottery has been recognized as a national leader in providing treatment funding and educating players about problem and responsible gambling. Nowhere is that more evident than during Problem Gambling Awareness Month as the Lottery increases its responsible and problem gambling awareness efforts," said Oregon Lottery Director Jack Roberts.

Campaigns to Help

During the month of March, the lottery is running problem and responsible gambling television, radio and digital campaigns across the state.

The Lottery has also created a package of materials that includes posters and business card-sized brochures with problem gambling resources people can contact and other useful information. All of those materials have been distributed to our retailers and have been made available to local problem gambling treatment providers," said Lottery Corporate Communications Manager Joanie Steven-Schwenger.

Oregon Lottery proceeds have provided funding for free, confidential and effective gambling treatment programs across the state.
