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.

Gam-Anon School Kit

This School Kit has been designed by Gam-Anon for the school community — its administrators, support staff, teachers, parents, students — as it considers gambling-related issues.

In addition to the pages in this kit, there are links to specific pages of our website www.gam-anon.org in the Appendix. We invite you to visit the website to learn more about Gam-Anon — a 12-Step self-help fellowship of men and women who have been affected by the gambling problem of another — Personal Experiences, Meetings, Literature, etc.

Every page of this kit and every linked page in the Appendix may be reprinted in its copyrighted form for your newsletters, mailings, bulletin boards, presentations, websites, etc.

Please know . . . Others have walked this path before; you are not alone. For more information, please contact the Gam-Anon International Service Office 718-352-1671 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.



For the Media/PSA


Gam-Anon offers hope and help when a loved one has a gambling problem. Living with the effects of someone else’s gambling problem is too devastating for most people to bear without help. Financial problems are common, and loved ones often feel alone, frightened, desperate and ashamed about the problem in their family.

Gam-Anon is an anonymous fellowship that offers self-help recovery for anyone whose life has been affected by someone with a gambling problem. In Gam-Anon, family and friends learn effective ways of coping whether or not the gambler seeks help or even recognizes the existence of a gambling problem.
