This is Responsible Gaming Education week in Missouri. We want to take this time to remind you that if you or someone you know has a gambling problem, free help is available at 888-Bets Off, or www.888betsoff.org. We hope you enjoy playing the Lottery, but we also hope that you always play within your means and only for fun.
The 2008 Midwest Conference on Problem Gambling and Substance Abuse is taking place this week in St. Louis. This conference has become one of the premier opportunities for continuing education for counselors and treatment professionals. Highlights include sessions and keynotes from some of the nation's leading professionals, including Dr. Westley Clark, the director of the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
The Missouri Lottery is proud to be a member of the Missouri Alliance to Curb Problem Gambling and of our contribution to the Midwest Conference on Problem Gambling and Substance Abuse. We would like to welcome all participants in this year's conference. You can find more information about this event here.
