Whether it’s sports-betting, casino games, lottery tickets or online poker, gambling continues to grow in popularity and has become more easily accessible than ever before. For many, gambling is a harmless form of entertainment, but for some, it becomes a crippling disorder that can destroy lives and families.

Problem gambling is a brutal, progressive disorder that sees affected individuals unable to stop betting, even in the face of losses. This compulsive need to bet frequently, or to bet increasing sums of money, destroys both lives and relationships.

Problem gambling can affect anyone, regardless of position, education or income. But there is hope – there is life beyond a gambling problem. If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-333-HOPE (gambling help hotline) or text HOPE to 53342 for confidential counseling.

Remember, treatment works.
