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 and its financial and emotional effects on the gamblers' families and loved ones.

Ten Good Things About Gam-Anon

 
 
1. You will never feel alone. Gam-Anon offers daily peer support from people  who  share  your  concerns,  with  ongoing  communication  via meetings, telephone, text, email, etc.
 
2. We  encourage   a   one-day-at-a-time   process,   making   life   more manageable and goals achievable.
 
3. We are all equal in Gam-Anon, always listening and learning from each other. No one is judgmental.
 
4. Gam-Anon’s mission is to share experience, strength and hope with those who are experiencing difficulties due to someone else’s gambling.
 
5. The help you receive does not depend on whether or not your loved one attends Gamblers Anonymous.
 
6. Gam-Anon  members  experience  positive  changes  in  their  lives beyond the problem of someone else’s gambling. Learning how to use our well-established Twelve Step Program improves 
relationships with family, community, career, and most importantly with self.
 
7. With the help of Gam-Anon, our members regain confidence to make rational, sensible decisions, and they experience serenity.
 
8. Gam-Anon offers practical financial suggestions.
 
9. Anonymity is a guiding principle. What is said in a Gam-Anon room, who you see in a Gam-Anon room, stays in the room.
 
10. There are no fees, no insurance forms to fill out, no appointments necessary. Just show up at a meeting.
