March 13th, 2017

Why is Problem Gambling Awareness Month Important?
Most adults gamble, and therefore would benefit from programs to prevent gambling addiction. March
has become one of the biggest gambling occasions because of the popularity of the NCAA "March
Madness" Basketball Tournament. Between six and nine million people meet criteria for gambling
problems, yet only a fraction seek help. We believe many who suffer in silence do so because they
don't know they developed a problem, what gambling addiction is, or where to get help.

Council Program Highlight 

TASC, Treatment Accountability for Safer Communities, is a case management service that serves individuals who have become involved in the Criminal Justice system due to their alcohol and/or other drug (AOD) use. Case managers work with qualifying individuals, connecting them to needed services such as AOD treatment ,recovery services and working toward long-term recovery. Services can be provided to individuals who may or may not be engaged in treatment. To be eligible for the TASC Program, the client must reside in Bucks County and not have any history of violent crime. The program supports efficient use of resources by screening, assessing and placing justice clients in the appropriate level of care and ensuring that transitional & aftercare needs are met. Benefits of TASC include; increased communication between the legal and healthcare systems, reduced recidivism and new arrests and increased engagement in treatment services. Referrals come from various sources such as County and State Probation and Parole, treatment providers and other legal entities.
