Thousands of Louisiana residents suffer from a gambling problem and it often goes untreated.

But there are ways to get help.

The state has a publicly-funded residential treatment facility in Shreveport called CORE.

There is also a gambling hotline available for information and referral assistance. The number is 1-877-770-STOP (7867).

If you or someone you know would like to speak to a counselor about a gambling problem, contact Matricia Green at (225) 362-5360 or at matricia.green@la.gov.
