Louisiana Study of Problem Gambling
Thursday, March 27, 2008
In 1995 the Louisiana Compulsive Gambling Committee was established to study the gambling behaviors, infrastructure, and interventions available to Louisiana residents. The increase in legal gambling age and the establishment of the Problem Gamblers Helpline and CORE-Center of Recovery treatment
facility occurred in great part from the recommendations of this committee. One additional recommendation was to conduct comprehensive, empirically” driven studies on problem and pathological gambling in Louisiana.
