Gambling Studies Program

Problem Gambling Telephone Intervention

UGSP, along with existing problem gambling helpline services, will implement a problem gambling telephone intervention (PGTI). It is an enhanced phone case management and relapse prevention program for those with limited access to treatment or self-help resources and for motivated callers who want assistance in recovery and relapse prevention. Services will be provided in English, Spanish, and Chinese to a wide variety of Californians. By making PGTI services available, OPG will be able to provide services to those in rural areas who cannot reach outpatient providers.
