Providing Gambling Disorder Treatment And Community Outreach.
The Illinois Department of Human Services/Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery (IDHS/SUPR) is pleased to welcome our newest Dedicated Gambling Program award recipient. We congratulate The South Suburban Council and welcome them to the current group of dedicated gambling programs that assist IDHS/SUPR with the expansion of outreach and treatment services for people who suffer from gambling disorders.
The South Suburban Council will bring years of experience working with substance use and mental health disorders in the communities they serve. We look forward to collaborating with The South Suburban Council as they expand their services to include gambling.
The Council is one of only four that will provide both gambling treatment services and community outreach services.
The South Suburban Council will use their expertise in their communities to aggressively reach populations that are at risk for gambling disorder due to geographic, demographic, cultural and/or economic factors and may be underserved due to these factors.
The IDHS/SUPR licensed organization will establish programs that specifically address gambling disorders through screening, assessment, treatment, case management and recovery support. The South Suburban Council will also provide aggressive community outreach through education and awareness related to gambling.
The addition of The South Suburban Council as a provider expands gambling disorder services and community awareness to Cook, DuPage, Will, Grundy and Kankakee counties. The South Suburban Council will begin serving their communities July 1, 2020.
