Why Not Try our Friends and Family Online Support Groups?
At present, Gambling Therapy runs one group each week specifically designed to support and advise the friends and family members of problem gamblers all around the globe. If you are a friend or family member looking for acceptance, these groups are totally non-judgemental and confidential. They provide a safe environment to let off steam, talk about issues that are affecting you ‘today’, while offering support and experience. It's a place of comfort, somewhere to lay down your burden for an hour knowing you will be understood.
You can register in The ‘Meeting Place’ forum to let others know that you'll be attending a group on a certain day if there are specific people you want to catch up with in "real time". Or you can attend a group on the fly if you see there is one coming up on the group schedule. Use it – it is yours. On your own, or with others, rest assured there will always be a warm welcome. :)
The friends and family group is on Thursday evening at 20:00 . All of these times are GMT but if you have included your time zone in your profile the times will appear on the group schedule in the time zone you're in.
Why not join us? Or if you're a problem gambler who feels their loved one might benefit from this kind of support, why not ask them to give it a try?
We look forward to spending time with you!
