Founded in 1996 as a charitable organization, the National Center for Responsible Gaming is exclusively devoted to funding research for gaming-related issues and effective methods of treatment. The research is scientific, peer-reviewed, and focused on prevention, diagnostic, intervention and treatment strategies, and advancing public education about responsible gaming.
The NCRG website (http://www.ncrg.org/) provides a variety of support and referral sources for help with counseling and crisis support for any affected by a gaming-related issue.
If you have questions or concerns about your own gaming behavior or about that of a friend or family member, a good place to start is the NCRG. You can also contact a 24 Hour Confidential National Helpline Number: 1-800-522-4700 for additional assistance provided by the NCPG.
