Welcome to the official website of the Gam-Anon® International Service Office, Inc., serving the community of international meetings of the Gam-Anon Family Groups.
Gam-Anon has created this website to provide information for the general public and professional community about problem ( compulsive ) gambling.
Gam-Anon is a 12 Step self-help fellowship of men and women who have been affected by the gambling problem of a loved one. We understand as perhaps few can. We are familiar with worry and sleepless nights and promises made only to be broken.
The message of Gam-Anon is: Come join with us. We too were alone, afraid, and unable to cope with the deterioration in our relationships, the financial problems, and the debt caused by the gambling problem. We know that living with the effects of a loved one's gambling can be too devastating to bear without help.
Through Gam-Anon we find our way back to a normal way of thinking and living whether or not our loved ones continue to gamble.
If a gambling problem is affecting your life, you may find help at a Gam-Anon meeting. A list of Gam-Anon meetings is available on this website.
