The effects of a gambling problem extend beyond the gambler to include family members and even friends. Research has shown that at least 8-10 other people are negatively affected by one person with a serious gambling problem so don’t minimize difficulties you or another family member may be experiencing.

If you think that gambling is a problem for you or a family member, help is available. Feel free to post us a note so we can provide information that may be helpful to you or so you can hear from others who may be facing similar situations. Keep in mind when posting a message that we will review and one of your peers will get back to you.

You and your family are not alone. If you prefer to speak with a HelpLine specialist, call the FCCG 24-hour hotline. The call is toll-free and completely confidential.
