Problem gamblers in New York can now receive in-patient care at six state-run addiction treatment centers. Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Friday that the treatment centers have been granted waivers allowing them to admit people with problem gambling as their primary diagnosis. The centers traditionally accept people with chemical dependencies. The centers now have problem gambling clinicians on staff to provide inpatient services to people for up to 30 days.
