Hamilton, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/27/2017 -- The Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey (CCGNJ) is dedicated to helping individuals keep their New Year's resolutions in regards to gambling addiction. This organization seeks to spark change in the life of gambling addicts in the region by providing a variety of resources and programs.
The CCGNJ understands that successful recovery is more difficult than merely making a resolution. Often, problem gamblers reap the consequences of their behavioral addiction by chasing losses and further hurting their financial situation, health, job and relationships with friends and family. Isolating themselves from others or dealing with disorders that can lead to domestic abuse and violence can further compound the difficulty of recovery.
"It's more than just making a mental resolution," the CCGNJ Executive Director Neva Pryor said. "It's about an entire lifestyle transformation."
The CCGNJ backs up this sentiment through advocacy, intervention, outreach, public awareness, information, prevention programs, training for professionals and treatment. They provide resources such as a free 24/7 hotline for gamblers and their friends and family members. They offer support for gambling addicts and people who just learned how to gamble in NJ alike.
With a variety of information such as brochures and fact sheets and programs available, the CCGNJ gears its efforts toward helping people transform their lives, whether they are seniors, adults or adolescents.
Individuals dedicated to seeing their New Year's resolutions through, or helping loved ones with their racetrack wagering problems and similar problemating gambling behaviors in the Monmouth, NJ, area, can receive guidance and treatment by visiting the CCGNJ online at http://800gambler.org or calling their 24/7 hotline at 1-800-GAMBLER.
