What is VPGR?
Problem gamblers and their families need a voice in Oregon. This is why the Oregon Council on Problem Gambling organized a ready group of people to provide first-hand witness of the effects of problem gambling and serve as advocates for community action. Meetings consist of sharing ideas, creating initiatives, and educating members about topics such as the legislative process and effective communication.Members have a place where they can give back to their community, positively harness their energy, and promote recovery.
Where do we stand?
Voices of Problem Gambling Recovery believes that problem gambling is not a bad habit or moral weakness. It is a psychological condition that can be changed. We are an organization devoted to education and advocacy. Anonymity is optional and our organization is not designed as a substitute for treatment or 12-step group participation.
You can make a difference and help create a brighter future. VPGR (c) 2013
