Gambling is a source of entertainment for many people, but Nebraska Health and Human Services Program Manager Maya Chilese says as many as 55,000 Nebraskans may engage in problem gambling behaviors.
“We always want to make sure that those individuals and loved ones can get help… we know treatment can help”. Chilese says.
A new public state awareness campaign – “Play It Safe” – will help Nebraskans understand their limits and offer resources for those struggling to stay in control.
Chilese says those seeking help can call 1-800-GAMBLER for more information.
