The Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey (CCGNJ) has a great opportunity for dedicated therapists to join our Treatment Provider Network. If you are a counselor who provides services to those who have a loved one or someone struggling with problem gambling and/or are a licensed mental health/substance abuse provider, you should consider becoming a CCGNJ provider.
Benefits of Being a CCGNJ Treatment Provider include:
- Referrals from those that contact our 800GAMBLER helpline and via chat/text from https://800gambler.org/
- Free 30-hour gambling training program that meets requirements of the International Gambling Counselor Certification Board (IGCCB)
- Exclusive access to CCGNJ Webinars and events
- Free Access to Board Approved Clinical Supervision with an International Gambling Licensing Board Consultant
- CEU opportunities
Applicants must be:
1. An independently licensed clinician who has completed or is currently enrolled in an International Certification in Gambling Counseling (ICGC) level I or II program; those pursuing the ICGC certification must complete the program within two years of becoming a CCGNJ Certified Treatment Provider.
2. A qualified clinician working in the New Jersey Division of Mental Health & Addiction Services, or a substance use disorder or mental health agency program with Department of Health licensure.
3. Clinicians must complete a 30-hour gambling-specific training program (toward ICGC-I), participate in the CCGNJ’s Clinical Supervision meetings and expect to pass the ICGC test after one year.
