Certified Problem Gambling Treatment Counselor
ODMHSAS and the Oklahoma Association on Problem Gambling & Gaming (OAPGG) have been working to develop a state certification for problem gambling counselors. State certification has been approved by the legislature, and ODMHSAS has outlined the certification process in Title 450: Chapter 75; Standards and Criteria for Certified Problem Gambling Treatment Counselors. The certification process will include basic training, consultation calls, and clinical experience. Those that have already received basic training and participated in consultation calls will have an opportunity to be grandfathered into the certification.
You may begin the application process on September 1, 2021. The certification will be numbered so get your application in early to get the lowest number possible. Certifications will be processed beginning November 1, 2021.
