Alabama Is a Number 42 in Funding Help.


Alabama is ranked at 47th in funding for Compulsive Gambling treatment. They have an estimated 2.2% of adults who are likely manifesting a problem which works out to 79,033 people. As of 2012 there were 4,200 gaming machines in three tribal Casinos, pan-mutual wagering and charity gaming. It the fastest growing market with an increase of 26%.

Alabama has a law in place to protect the release of what the total gaming revenues are so that it is treated as confidential.

Sadly, Alabama routs its calls from Compulsive Gamblers to the national hotline and does not maintain its own services.  A private non-profit organization provides some services but is very limited in scope due in part to limited funds.
