Help for Family and Friends

Help for Family and Friends

The Iowa Gambling Treatment Program helps problem gamblers and concerned others. Counseling provides direction on what family and friends should and shouldn't do to help themselves.

 

Family Members and Friends Will Learn How To:

  • Confront and cease enabling behaviors
  • Restore normal life routines
  • Reinforce appropriate actions for recovery
  • Distance themselves from the problem behavior
  • Not to blame themselves for the problem, but to take responsibility for their own lives

If someone you know has a gambling problem, get help. Call 1-800-BETS-OFF.
