The “Why” – A Reminder

The purpose and drive behind this site is to create more communication between Problem Gamblers, At-Risk Gamblers & the Families of those in need. In turn, increased communication should get out more information and additionally get more people that need treatment into treatment. Everything we do on the site should lead to communication or at least lower the barriers (nervousness, confusion, guilt, intimidation) of communication.
