Gambling Addiction Services

Whether your gambling involves lottery tickets, casino games, horse racing or sports betting, slot machines, or video lottery terminals (VLTs), a gambling addiction is a serious problem.  

Two signs of a gambling addiction are:

  1. You cannot control the amount of time and money you are spending.
  2. You continue to gamble even though it is causing harm to your family, career or bank account.

Where can I get help for my gambling?

Call an Addiction Services office in your area to get information or to request an appointment.

Callers may also choose to be referred to Addiction Services for counselling.
