Problem Gambling Prevention

Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare offers Problem Gambling Prevention Services in Clackamas County. There are two main goals for problem gambling prevention: outreach aimed at increasing the general public’s awareness of problem gambling and preventing problem gambling.

What are some examples of problem gambling prevention activities?

The problem gambling prevention specialist is available to fit your needs:

  • They can teach the “Stacked Deck” curriculum, which is an evidenced based problem gambling prevention program for high school students. The series of interactive lessons uses a variety of methods to engage students while learning about gambling prevention.
  • Middle school youth have an opportunity to participate in Oregon Health Authority’s Problem Gambling Awareness Art Search. Every year middle school youth create art with a message of building awareness around problem gambling. The top 12 submissions are then created into a special calendar that is distributed throughout the state. Contact Cascadia’s Problem Gambling Program if you would like a calendar.
  • Cascadia prevention specialists can give presentations to any of the following populations: drug and alcohol or mental health groups, older adults, college students, or veterans. They are able to do tabling events, public service announcements, and education sessions at places such as libraries or other businesses.

What are the costs?

Cascadia provides free problem gambling prevention services for anyone in Clackamas County. If you are outside of Clackamas County, we can help find you other community resources to fit your needs.
