GAMBLERS ANONYMOUS & GAM-ANAON
Thursdays: 8pm to 10pm in the Orpen Lounge & Plaxton Room
Gamblers Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to do the same. GA members offer the hand of friendship to anyone who is looking to try and stop gambling.
If you are affected by someone else’s gambling then Gam-Anon can help. Our meetings are for anyone who has been affected by a loved one’s gambling problem. We have been where you are now. By sharing your experience you will find that you are not alone!
If you are seeking a solution for living with this problem, we would like you to feel that we understand as perhaps few can. Why not pop along and get the help you have been looking for. There is no membership or registration required, just turn up.
