Gam-Anon is a self-help group providing support to partners, families or significant others of a problem gambler.
Gam-Anon works on the premise of three main principles:
- To learn to accept and understand the nature of gambling addiction
- To utilise the program's problem solving ideas to help to rebuild lives
- When recovery is complete, to help and give assistance to others in need.
At weekly meetings, people can educate themselves and learn new ways of dealing with the gambler. In the process, they can learn a better way of life for themselves.
