Gam-Anon Family Groups
This is how Gam-Anon describes itself:
Gam-Anon is a 12 Step self-help fellowship of men and women who have been affected by the gambling problem of a loved one. We understand as perhaps few can. We are familiar with worry and sleepless nights and promises made only to be broken.
The message of Gam-Anon is: Come join with us. We too were alone, afraid, and unable to cope with the deterioration in our relationships, the financial problems, and the debt caused by the gambling problem. We know that living with the effects of a loved one's gambling can be too devastating to bear without help.
Through Gam-Anon we find our way back to a normal way of thinking and living whether or not our loved ones continue to gamble.
If a gambling problem is affecting your life, you may find help at a Gam-Anon meeting.
If you are unable to find a Gam-Anon meeting in your area you may like to contact people at a local Gamblers Anonymous meeting to see if they can help.
