Shared Responsibility

Addressing problem gambling is the shared responsibility of individuals, community groups, businesses and government agencies. To most effectively harness this type of collaboration, organizations in Oregon have formed formal partnerships to promote a shared agenda. This shared agenda is to create an informed public, promote responsible gambling, ensure funding of a comprehensive prevention and treatment system, and create awareness of resources available for people with gambling issues. This is accomplished through a partnership comprised of the Oregon Council on Problem Gambling, the Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon Lottery. Together, they partner to support the Oregon Problem Gambling Resource (OPGR).
