Getting Help is Your Best Bet.

Problem gambling has more co-occurring instances of depression, anxiety, domestic violence, and child abuse than almost any other form of addiction.


Problem gambling comes down to more than just wins and losses. It can affect your family, relationships, career, finances, and even your mental health. If you’re struggling with problem gambling–you can get help.

Treatment is available at no cost to problem gamblers, their families, and other concerned parties who live in Kansas. Confidential help is available at 1-800-GAMBLER or 1-800-522-4700.
