New campaign launched to help Nebraskans with gambling limits

Posted: Updated:

Nebraska is launching a new campaign to help its citizens understand their gambling limits.

The Department of Health and Human Services has launched a new web site meant to help identify signs that there could be a problem.   The director of the behavioral health division, Scot Adams, says that knowing the difference between low–risk and a potential problem is the first defense against a gambling problem.  

The state gamblers assistance program says that about 55,000 Nebraskans may have a problem without realizing it.
