More gambling addiction treatment funds coming to southern Illinois
A $119,517 grant to provide treatment and intervention services for people with a gambling disorder in Perry, Franklin, Jackson, Johnson, Saline, Union and Williamson counties has been awarded to Centerstone, from the Illinois Department of Human Services division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery. "With the passing of recent legislation that expanded gambling services in Illinois, we anticipate a greater need for gambling treatment services in our area," said John Markley, CEO of Centerstone. "In an area already stricken with poverty and lack of resources, gambling disorders may lead to other issues for individuals and the community, including job loss, loss of support systems, criminal behavior, and additional mental health concerns."
