History, Mission of the Midwest Consortium on Problem Gambling and Substance Abuse
The Midwest Consortium was created in 2003 with a focus on development and implementation of the Midwest Conference on Problem Gambling and Substance Abuse.

Now an annual event, the conference offers participants an opportunity to interact with a diverse community committed to making a difference and to learn from nationally recognized experts in the field. In addition, participants network with national and international educators and researchers to discover resources that enhance quality services for persons with problem gambling and substance abuse behaviors.

The mission of the Midwest Consortium on Problem Gambling and Substance Abuse is to promote and unify education, science and services to improve the quality and availability of community-based problem gambling and substance abuse treatment services for individuals and families who need them.

The consortium is a collaborative approach representing treatment and prevention providers, educators, industry and public-policy makers who are focused on improving the lives of individuals and families affected by addiction.

Initiatives and programs are based on research findings and the general consensus of experts in the addiction field that, for most individuals, treatment and recovery work best in a community-based coordinated system of comprehensive services. Because no single treatment approach is effective for all persons, the Midwest Consortium supports the nation's effort to provide multiple treatment options, evaluate treatment effectiveness and use evaluation results to enhance treatment and recovery approaches.
