Blue Ribbon and Text March is Problem Gambling Awareness Month

March 2024

March is Problem Gambling Awareness month. According to the Maryland Center of Excellence on Problem Gambling, in the United States, an estimated 2 million adults will meet the criteria for severe gambling problems. Another 4 to 6 million adults are considered to have mild or moderate gambling problems, meaning they do not meet the full diagnostic criteria for gambling disorder, but are still experiencing significant distress as a result of their gambling behavior.

Counseling for gambling problems is available at no cost to Maryland residents. Anyone concerned for themselves or another person can reach out to the Center's helpline 24/7 by calling or texting 1-800-GAMBLER (1-800-426-2537)

If you are in crisis and need help, our Warmline is open 24/7 at 410-768-5522.
