Help For Gamblers and Their Families
"Problem gambling can affect everyday life situations.
Depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties and mood swings
can all be related to problem gambling. Almost 1 million adults
in California experience these or similar symptoms."*
And, it's not just the gambler that suffers negative effects on their life. Gambling problems create tremendous difficulty for family, friends and employers.
If you, or someone you know, is experiencing a gambling problem (This includes people who have had problems with stock trading), the State of California will pay for your counseling. The State of California, in conjunction with UCLA, has trained a group of therapists to provide this treatment and support. I am one of them.
This confidential service is FREE to gamblers or anyone affected by their gambling.
