What is the National Council on Problem Gambling?
The National Council’s nationwide help line offers unparalleled flexibility, due to it decentralized structure. When 800-522-4700 is dialed from anywhere within the U.S., the caller is instantly routed to the predetermined call center that has responsibility for the area where the call originated. Each answering location has problem gambling-specific resources and information for their particular geographical area. An important aspect of the NCPG help line is its seamless computer switching system. Most other help lines serve only a limited area, usually a state. These numbers are often blocked to callers outside the state. Of course, many people cross state lines to buy a lottery ticket or visit a casino. The NCPG helpline is the only number that is guaranteed to work across the nation.
