Gambling addiction

Gambling is recreation to most people. To some, however, it's much more than that. It can be just as disruptive as substances like alcohol and other drugs.

Gambling is a behavior that carries risk. If you or someone you care about is putting too much at stake with gambling, help is available 24 hours a day by calling 1-877 MY LIMIT. Or visit for information or to speak with a problem gambling specialist.
