Gambling Help Online is operated by Turning Point, which was established in 1994 to provide leadership to the drug and alcohol field in Victoria, Australia. We have been a treatment service for problem gambling since 2000 across many states of Australia.
Turning Point amalgamated with public health provider, Eastern Health in October 2009 and is formally affiliated with Monash University.
We are part of the International Network of Drug Treatment & Rehabilitation Resource Centres for the United Nations Office of Drugs & Crime (UNODC), and a member of the International Harm Reduction Association. We are also a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and an accredited Higher Education Provider.
We strive to promote and maximise the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities living with, and affected by alcohol, gambling and other drug-related harms.
We aspire to be a world-leading treatment and research centre in the drug and alcohol field by:
- creating thriving service delivery, research and development cultures that produce the best possible knowledge
- applying research to promote change and contribute to policy making
- building our community capacity through strategic relationships, partnerships and collaborations
The organisation integrates activities across a diverse range of specialist knowledge and professional practice which enables us to translate evidence based research into action.
