Gam-Anon is a 12 Step self-help fellowship of men and women who have been affected by the gambling problem of another. We are familiar with worry and sleepless nights and promises made only to be broken. We know that living with the effects of another’s gambling can often be too devastating to bear without help. We believe that a change in our attitudes is of boundless helps to us as well as to our gamblers.
