Jeremy Eberle, of Lincoln, NE, is a licensed therapist providing services to individuals, groups, couples, and families since 2010. Mr. Eberle has focused primarily on treatment for substance use and gambling disorders. In 2017, Mr. Eberle was the lead researcher in a study connecting prevalence among Nebraska college students and fantasy sports. These findings were presented at the National Gambling Conference in Portland, Oregon, in July 2017, as well as at other conferences throughout the country.

In July 2019, Mr. Eberle opened Eberle Therapy Services but later joined services with Mrs. Johnson in 2020, successfully establishing Alternative Avenues in Lincoln, Nebraska. His current area of interest is the intersection between Gambling Use Disorder and Gaming Use Disorder, as these two disorders appear to share a great deal of similarity and comorbidity.
