Social Distancing Doesn’t Mean You Can’t Find Help.

Problem Gambling Resources are Available Online & by Phone.

Protective measures implemented in response to the Coronavirus have led to the cancellation of Gambler’s Anonymous 12-step meetings. People who struggle with feelings of loneliness and isolation and rely on those meetings can still find the support and guidance they need. As lifestyles are changing due to the Coronavirus, so too are the ways in which support services are reaching out to people in need. That includes options that can be accessed online and by phone.
