About Gamblers Anonymous

Gamblers Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who have joined together to do something about their own gambling problem and to help other compulsive gamblers do the same.

GA is not a campaigner against gambling, it neither endorses or opposes any causes or lends its name to any outside agencies. The Primary Purpose of GA is to carry the message to the compulsive gambler who is still suffering wherever they may be.

GA is self supporting and receives no grants, donations from government or any outside agency.

Our website answers many of the questions about compulsive gambling, our recovery programme and the locations of our meetings. But only a compulsive gambler will know if they are ready to receive help.

If you are having a problem controlling your gambling we’re here to help you. Our Helpline is open 24 hours a day on 0370 050 8881, our meetings are on every night of the week across all major towns and cities in Scotland, why not try our 20 questions to ask yourself.

GA Meetings, Helpline and the Website are all run and maintained by GA members, only Compulsive Gamblers truly understand the mind of a Compulsive Gambler, the traits, the experience of the feelings, the knowledge and experience of the destruction this family illness brings and of course can offer identification with the Compulsive Gambler who is still suffering.
