Lewis & Clark Problem Gambling Services provides high-quality counseling for individuals, couples, and families when gambling seems to be creating problems. We work with you to create an individualized plan that will help you look at how gambling may be affecting your life—and those around you—and to help you evaluate your options to create the change you want.

In addition to providing counseling, we aim to reduce the harm caused by problem gambling through research, professional education, and outreach.

We are dedicated to supporting social equity by providing easily accessible and culturally sensitive services. We recognize that problem gambling affects us all—and that we can all be part of the solution. We are committed to advocacy to address the costs of problem gambling to individuals, families, and to our larger community.



If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, you can call Multnomah County Mental Health Crisis Line at 503-988-4888. The crisis line is available 24/7 for mental health and addictions services.
Crisis line numbers for other counties in the Portland area can be found here.
