When gambling problems go unaddressed individuals, families, and whole communities suffer. There is a solution. Anyone can recover from gambling problems. Sadly, less than 1% of those who struggle get help. Shame, denial and lack of awareness prevent people from seeking help. Silence causes shame, denial and lack of awareness.
