There are organizations available that provide the supportive environments to share experiences with people going through similar issues, whether you are the person with a problem gambling issue or a friend or family member.
Gamblers Anonymous provides people with an opportunity to share their experience. It also provides support and hope in order to stop gambling.
At regular local meetings throughout Saskatchewan, members share their gambling and abstinence experiences. They discuss the 12 steps to recovery. The only membership requirement is a desire to stop gambling. There are no membership fees.
