What is Gam-Anon?
Gam-Anon is a fellowship of men and women who are husbands, wives, relatives or close friends who have been affected by the gambling problem. If you are seeking a solution for living with this problem, we would like you to feel that we understand, as perhaps few can. We too are familiar with worry and sleepless nights and promises made only to be broken. Our thinking had become confused and unreasonable.
Gam-Anon can offer you a new way of life.
- To welcome and give assistance and comfort to those affected by the gambling problem
- To learn to understand the gambling problem and its impact on our lives
- To give encouragement and understanding to the gambler when they join Gamblers Anonymous
- To use the programme and its problem-solving suggestions as aids in rebuilding our lives
GamAnon meetings are usually held on the same nights as GA meetings but in separate rooms. The two fellowships do not share experiences or information about each other.
