Gamblers Anonymous (GA)
Gamblers Anonymous is a mutual-aid group, similar in principles and philosophy to Alcoholics Anonymous, following a disease model of addiction with lifelong total abstinence needed for recovery from "Compulsive Gambling". It offers support to people affected by gambling problems. GA's belief is that "compulsive gamblers" have a progressive illness, which can be arrested, but never cured.
Gamanon is a mutual-aid support group for people affected by someone else's gambling, such as family members, partners, friends and so on.
