New Mexico Council on Problem Gambling

The New Mexico Council on Problem Gambling (NMCPG), established in 1998, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help compulsive gamblers and their families by providing crisis intervention via our twenty-four hour gambling specific statewide bi-lingual hotline. The New Mexico Council on Problem Gambling is neutral in regards to gambling. We are against problem gambling. The New Mexico 1-800 hotline provides crisis intervention twenty-four hours a day, three hundred sixty-five days a year. Callers may share their personal information or remain anonymous if they prefer. Referrals can be made to licensed professional counselors, Gamblers Anonymous meetings held in the callers area, consumer debt counseling, Gamanon (for family members of gamblers), and other various services or facilities for compulsive gamblers.

Callers who are in need of counseling can be referred to licensed, certified problem gambling counselors throughout the state of New Mexico as well as close-by communities in bordering states.

The Council provides services consistent with their Responsible Gaming Program as well as training gaming establishment staff on how to make an effective intervention and referral for a problem gambler in crisis. Problem Gambling does NOT just effect your life, it impacts others around you. Your call for help is not just a call for yourself. Help is available, twenty-four hours, seven days a week at 1-800-gambler. (1-800-572-1142).
