About the Gambling Support Network
The Gambling Support Network is a province-wide, free, distance counselling service. It offers both long-term support and short-term crisis counselling. The Gambling Support Network is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can phone anytime. If you can’t get through, please leave a message. A counsellor will call you back.
When you call the Gambling Support Network, you talk with a counsellor who offers the same services as a counsellor that you would meet face-to-face. The only difference is that you talk to the counsellor on the phone. You’ll find more information about what to expect from counselling further on in this booklet.
When you call the Gambling Support Network, everything you tell them is confidential. The only exceptions to this are if you talked about wanting to commit suicide, or if abuse is suspected. The Gambling Support Network also offers general information for people wanting to know more about gambling problems.
