GAMBLERS ANONYMOUS SINGAPORE

Addiction can have a crippling effect on you and those around you, and can lead to health problems and behavioral disorders. But there’s always hope and there is always light, even in the darkest of hours. Gamblers Anonymous Singapore can help you overcome your challenges. Get your life back on the right path - and, with our ongoing support, stay on that path for good.

 

WHO WE ARE

No one decides to become an addict. There are normally very complex and deeply personal reasons for falling prey to such a debilitating disorder. At Gamblers Anonymous Singapore, we see addiction as a symptom of a larger illness, almost as an attempt to self medicate and keep that illness at bay. Here, our philosophy is different. We believe that treating an addiction is only part of the healing process. We look to rehabilitate the whole, or at least identify where the greater problem lies.


At our group sessions, we use our own unique program and practice in a safe and warm environment of mutual understanding. We aim to give you control of your life back, help you reconcile with your past and empower you to embrace the future.

"Fellow gambler, take my hand,
I'm your friend, I understand.
I know your guilt, your shame, remorse,
I'll borne the burden of your cross.
I've found a friend who offered ease.
He suffered, too, with this disease.
Although he had no magic cure,
He showed me how he could endure.
We walked together side by side;
We spoke of things we had to hide.
We told of sleepless nights and debts,
Of broken homes and lies and threats.
And so my weary gambler friend,
Please take this hand that I extend.
Take one more chance at something new,
Another gambler helping you."
