A new gambling addiction and treatment center, funded by casino slots tax dollars, is open at UNLV in Las Vegas. The Problem Gambling Treatment Program received $150,000 dollars out of the $2.5 million the state allocated this year for casino gambling treatment. The money for the program comes from a tax on casino slot games.

According to the AP, Program Director Larry Ashley will supervise four UNLV students who will assist patients at the center. Nevada has also set aside $37,000 for gambling prevention work this fall with plans to lecture area high school students about the dangers of casino gambling addiction.

The legislation passed last year to have Nevada tax dollars pay for gambling treatment and prevention is not something new. Other states across the United States have spent gambling revenue tax dollars on casino gambling addiction treatment.
