The Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey (CCGNJ) is one of the first responsible gambling organizations set up as gaming spread across the United States. Felicia Grondin was appointed executive director of the agency a year ago after a long career on the regulatory side. She has recently negotiated the use of one of the unforgettable phone numbers in the business—1-800-GAMBLER. Along with the Nation Center for Problem Gambling, CCGNJ will coordinate the use of the number on a nationwide basis, throwing desperate and troubled gamblers a lifeline just when they need it. She spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros via Zoom from the CCGNJ offices in New Jersey in July.
