Experience Verification Form

  • Must be completed by a supervisor competent in treating gambling disorder, as noted in the Supervisory Verification Form.

  • The 100 hours can be gained through direct clinical care for clients or family members, providing gambling education within substance use disorder (SUD) or mental health (MH) groups, completing gambling-specific screenings, assessments, and documentation hours.

  • Clinicians that complete the Stages Training Series, or who demonstrate they have obtained 30 hours of gambling-specific education, are eligible to complete a Referral Agreement with PGNO that will place their agency on the state-wide gambling treatment provider list. This referral list is utilized by the Ohio Problem Gambling Helpline to link clients to local providers that are competent in treating gambling disorder.
