Abstract

The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH)/Iowa Gambling Treatment Program will begin offering distance treatment as an approved service type for individual, family, and group counseling on July 1, 2008. As a lead-up to this initiative, IDPH contacted the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) and requested technical assistance in developing a problem gambling distance treatment program. Under contract with CSAT, JBS International, Inc., formed an agreement with Problem Gambling Solutions, Inc. (PGS), to undertake a 6-month project with IDPH to develop the foundation to a statewide problem gambling distance treatment program. This manuscript documents the development phase of this initiative—from January to June 2008.
