The New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services announced that up to $3.3 million in annual funding is being allocated to establish seven Problem Gambling Resource Centers throughout the state. Each Center will serve as a central hub for facilitating problem gambling awareness, community education, prevention, treatment and recovery support services in its region. The Centers will be funded through annual licensing fees that casinos operating in New York State pay for each gambling table and slot machine at their facilities.
