The Louisiana Association on Compulsive Gambling provides sponsorship of the Dan J. Talley Memorial Institute, which provides continuing clinical education to licensed/certified addictions counseling professionals and other interested mental health professionals in Louisiana. The training presents the most current information available on topics germane both to basic and advanced clinical knowledge and skills.

The Institute had its beginnings in 1990 when Dan J. Talley was Executive Director of the Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse of Northwest Louisiana. Mr. Talley's stated mission in proposing and creating the Institute was to promote continuing education to mental health professionals toward the goal of eliminating stigma around addiction and other mental disorders. LACG created its own Institute in his honor in 2011.

The Dan J. Talley Memorial Institute is Louisiana Approved Education Provider (AEP) E004 through the Addictive Disorder Regulatory Authority (ADRA), and the organization provides both on-site and extramural events throughout the year. Clinicians can also avail themselves of correspondence study through the Institute by special arrangement.
