While this certification is specific to Vigo County, the organization continues to provide counseling for gambling addiction, and all other forms of addiction, throughout its 10-county regional footprint.

Gambling services in the Vigo County programs will be reimbursed by DMHA, should the consumer have no insurance coverage. This would include those without any insurance coverage at all or those whose plans do not include gambling addiction or services offered by DMHA. The DMHA covered services include individual counseling, case management, skills training, financial counseling, transportation and other support services.

The term “problem gambling” includes, but is not limited to, the condition known as pathological, or “compulsive” gambling, a progressive addiction characterized by increasing preoccupation with gambling, a need to bet more money more frequently, restlessness or irritability when attempting to stop, “chasing” losses, and loss of control manifested by continuation of the gambling behavior in spite of mounting, serious, negative consequences.
