Self-Help Groups

Self-Help Groups

Gamblers Anonymous and Gam-Anon are international organizations that allow groups of individuals to discuss feelings and share experiences related to their own (Gamblers Anonymous) or someone else’s (Gam-Anon) gambling. They can provide:

  • A safe environment to express feelings and work through problems
  • Non-judgmental feedback, encouragement, and support from individuals facing similar issues
  • A sense of belonging, friendship, and break from isolation
  • A new way of looking at problems
  • Information about other sources of help and recovery (e.g., counsellors, literature, etc.)
