Each year the Vermont Lottery funds and issues a grant to provide problem gambling services to Vermonters who struggle with gambling addiction. The Center for Addiction Recognition Treatment Education & Recovery (CARTER) based in Stowe, VT is the service provider. In prior years the organization that was funded by the Lottery grant was called the Vermont Council for Problem Gambling.
We recognize that many people that struggle with addiction are the last to admit they might have a problem and need assistance. Because of this it is common to have family members or friends of the person make contact to learn about services that they can recommend.
