About PGCC

The Problem Gambling Coalition of Colorado's mission is to increase awareness, advocate treatment and promote research and education on problem gambling. Our goal is to provide up-to-date Colorado specific information and links to other Resources. 

Our Vision is an ever increasing role in restoring and maintaining the quality of life of individuals and communities impacted by problem gambling. The PGCC will be a recognized contributor and leader in that movement.

Problem gambling is gambling behavior which causes disruptions in any major area of life: psychological, physical, social or vocational. 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.

The Problem Gambling Coalition of Colorado maintains a position of neutrality of gambling, recognizing that most people who gamble do so for recreation and suffer no serious problems.
