What is Gam-Anon?

Gam-Anon is a fellowship of men and women who are husbands, wives, relatives and close friends of compulsive gamblers. You need not wait for the compulsive gambler to seek help before coming to Gam-Anon.

In Gam-Anon we learn effective ways of coping with the gambling problem. By seeking help for ourselves and gaining serenity and peace of mind, we find that we are better able to cope with our problems on a day-to-day basis and in some cases motivate the gambler toward seeking help for him or herself.

If there is a gambling problem in your home, the Gam-Anon family group may be able to help you cope with it.

Gam-Anon meetings provide an opportunity for a strong bond to form between those affected by the problem of compulsive gambling. For more information on Gam-Anon in BC, please send an email to vancouverGamAnon@shaw.ca
