Problem Pathological Gambling


Our mission is to provide valuable, lasting, and holistic recovery options to individuals with a gambling disorder and their loved ones as we raise awareness and educate the community on how to prevent problem gambling.

Problem Gambling is a growing issue in our state for adults, older adults, and youth. It can cause serious damage in many areas of life, including finances, relationships with friends or loved ones, and in the workplace. The good news is there is hope, and treatment works!

We offer free treatment services to Native and non-Native individuals who struggle with problem gambling, and their loved ones, through assessments, group therapy, individual sessions, and family sessions.

With the support and assistance of ilani Casino, we can offer these services free to all Native and Non-Native individuals.

The legacy of an ancient people in southwest Washington is rich with descendants who manage a growing portfolio of health, education, scientific research, housing, transportation, development, elder care, conservation and legal issues. The Cowlitz Tribe is a growing force in community building in what are now Clark, Cowlitz, Lewis and parts of Pierce, Skamania and Wahkiakum Counties, a vast territory occupied by numerous Cowlitz villages prior to non-Cowlitz exploration and seizure. Today, an elected Tribal Council is composed of professionals adept at managing multiple programs and projects.
