September is National Recovery Month! Recovery Month is a national observance that educates Americans on the fact that addiction treatment and mental health services can enable those with a gambling, mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life.

Over the past 27 years, the Florida Council on Compulsive Gambling (FCCG) has helped thousands of people affected by gambling problems to find their path to recovery. The FCCG also wants everyone to know that they are not alone in their struggles. There are millions of people in the United States that are negatively affected by gambling addiction.

The FCCG raises awareness by educating the public about gambling disorders and provides free prevention materials to anyone that wishes to help spread the word about this addiction. The FCCG also promotes recovery by participating in outreach activities throughout the year across the state.

FREE resources are available to anyone that is impacted by this addiction.
