Peer Connect

Post by Administrator » Wed May 20, 2015 9:55 am

Peer Connect is a program that anyone can take advantage of when contacting the HelpLine. Is there a specific type of person that may benefit from Peer connect over others? Possibly. Callers who have sought help before and have been to GA or received counseling and just want to get back on track again may not need the Peer Connect program as they have experienced some level of recovery already and realize what they need to do to stop gambling and get better.

Callers who are on the fence about their gambling problem (level of severity), or who are in a dire situation, or loved ones seeking answers on how to support the gambler or protect themselves, are the types of callers who may benefit a great deal. That said, any caller can take advantage and potentially benefit from this program.

Peer Connect aims to instill motivation and inspiration to the caller. Peers can do this by sharing personal experiences of their journey and offering information that worked given their own path to recovery. Peers are fully aware that what worked for them may not work for every person so the object is to share and help guide the caller to a path that best suits their needs but is an effective form of recovery.


The FCCG is here to help! If you or someone you know has a problem, call the 24-hour, bilingual, confidential 1-888-ADMIT-IT HelpLine for resources and referrals.

I am interested in finding out how many of our members are involved with OPA because of our trademark peer group work?
