Cascadia Problem Gambling Program Helps Within Prison Walls

Since 2005 Cascadia has been working within the prisons, offering a program called “GEAR” (Gambling Evaluation and Reduction) to inmates. The GEAR program initially started at the women’s institution, Coffee Creek Correctional Facility (CCCF) in Wilsonville. Cascadia eventually expanded the program to the Columbia River Correctional Facility (CRCI) for men in Portland. Cascadia Problem Gambling Counselors have been working on problem gambling education within the prison systems and are changing lives.
