 Gambling Addiction Management through Education (GAME) - Family

GAME family is an 8-session psycho-educational and support group for family members of gamblers struggling with gambling addiction. The group is open to both the patients of NAMS as well as the general public. GAME Family teaches families how to better support the gambler in recovery, and also to take better care of themselves. The topics covered in the sessions include: 

  • Impact of problem gambling on family
  • Managing money
  • Managing stress
  • Understanding problem gambling
  • Helping the gambler
  • Rebuilding relationships
  • Caring for yourself
  • Understanding and preventing relapses.

Family members learn effective ways of coping with caregiver stress and to connect with others who are struggling with similar challenges. By sharing about their personal struggles, family members can bond and learn from each other. Participants who have attended GAME Family have given positive feedback that the group has helped them to feel more knowledgeable and confident about managing the gambler, rediscover hope, and empower their own lives.
