Grant will help Centerstone treat Illinois residents with gambling disorder

Centerstone has received a $119,517 grant from the Illinois Department of Human Services Substance Use Prevention and Recovery (SUPR) to provide treatment and intervention services for people with a gambling disorder in and around Franklin, Jackson, Johnson, Perry, Saline, Union and Williamson counties.

With the passing of recent legislation that expanded gambling services in Illinois, we anticipate a greater need for gambling treatment services in our area. In an area already stricken with poverty and lack of resources, gambling disorders may lead to other issues for individuals and the community, including job loss, loss of support systems, criminal behavior, and additional mental health concerns.

SUPR identifies designated Gambling Treatment Providers by location. Prior to the grant announcement, there were no providers in Centerstone’s service area in Southern Illinois.

Trained and certified staff will provide treatment not only to those with a gambling disorder but also to their family members, encouraging them to participate in assessment and counseling/treatment sessions. Family support is a critical part of treatment, and staff will encourage family participation and assist in the education and strengthening of family relationships.

Gambling Treatment Services is available now at 2311 S. Illinois Ave. in Carbondale and 1307 W. Main in Marion.

Congratulations to Andrea Quigley, clinical director, and team members for their work on the grant and the creation and implementation of the program.
