Florida Council on Compulsive Gambling

The impacts of a gambling problem affect individuals, families and communities, with costs extending from creditors to the criminal justice system.  Most people who gamble can do so safely, and without difficulty. However, gambling is not a risk-free activity. When gambling in excess, the onset of an addiction can result in serious to severe short and long-term difficulties. In addition to affecting an individual’s home life, financial status, career, education, social relationships, and physical or emotional health, gambling problems also impact those closest to the gambler. Moreover, businesses, local communities, the criminal justice system, social service organizations, and society as a whole are also significantly affected by problem and compulsive gambling.  Thankfully, help is available and gambling addiction can be treated if recognized. If you need assistance, contact our 24 hour, confidential Helpline 888-ADMIT-IT (888-236-4848) for resources and support.
