How can I support someone who has a concern with gambling?

It can be difficult for someone to admit that he or she has a gambling concern. You might realise that there is a concern before they do. They may be avoiding facing up to it. They may be telling themselves that everything is okay when it isn’t. For these reasons, it’s often difficult to talk to someone about their gambling.

If you think gambling is a concern and you are trying to decide what to do next, we are here to help. Contact the Gambling Support Network (1-888-347-8888) or (711) TTY or visit Addiction Services in your Community for information about services in your region.
