The Indiana Problem Gambling Awareness Program (IPGAP) provides many of these services in Indiana to a variety of audiences including counselors, therapists, prevention practitioners, those in recovery, families, and the general public.

IPGAP collects resources, including journals, monographs, curricula and statistical data on problem gambling; reviews available literature and curricula; analyze local and commercial data to generate reports; conduct research leading to publications; develop and distribute educational materials; and serve as a resource for references and contact information.

It also supports the delivery of evidence-based treatment for disordered gamblers enrolled in both public and privately funded treatment. IPGAP provides support through live and online training, provider resources and technical assistance on policy and treatment program development. IPGAP staff has provided training on disordered gambling and related addiction issues to hundreds of Hoosiers.
