Welcome to the GSU Problem Gambling Research & Intervention Project

Welcome to the Problem Gambling Research and Intervention Project at Georgia State University. We have partnered with the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD), who has provided funding to increase the state’s capacity to prevent and treat problem gambling. Our project offers assistance to various agencies and community organizations – a list of services can be found here. Resources available on this website include documents highlighting the prevalence of problem gambling within the state, as well as information about at-risk sub-populations such as college students and offenders. Our project is also engaged in the ongoing development of social marketing messages aimed at harm reduction and increasing awareness of this issue. All of this work is guided by a Strategic Plan created with the input of consumers and experts. Currently, our project is beginning research exploring the possible relationship between problem gambling, PTSD, and intimate partner violence among veterans. Additional helpful information on problem gambling can be found at the website for the National Council on Problem Gambling.
