Problem Gambling Program
Are you experiencing stress because of gambling? Weighed down by financial problems? Is there tension in your relationships because of it? Are others concerned about your gambling? Do you want to stop or decrease gambling but finding it hard to do so? There are solutions and talking to someone who understands this issue can help.
If you are concerned about your own gambling or are affected by someone else’s gambling, contact SHARE’s Problem Gambling Program. This program provides free individual, couple and group counselling. Appointments are at SHARE’s Port Moody office or through phone and/or video appointments.
The Problem Gambling Program is a confidential service and your privacy will be guaranteed.
You do not need to live in Tri-Cities to use this service. You do not need to stop gambling or ban yourself from casino or online gambling in order to access this help. Contact us directly at the numbers listed below. We will call you back within 24-hours. If you would like to book an appointment, we will do our best to meet you within a week. If you or your loved one are not ready for counselling, we can also connect you with an outreach/support worker who can talk to you more informally on the phone or somewhere in the community.
