Hamilton, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/07/2018 -- In the early months of 2018, many people are still working towards self-improvement goals, including recovery. The Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey (CCGNJ) offers resources and programs designed to help disordered gamblers address their problematic behaviors and transform their lives.
Disordered gambling can have an impact on everything from personal and professional relationships to finances and health. For example, concealing behavior like excessive daily fantasy sports betting in Atlantic City can create tension at home and in the workplace. Moreover, an untreated gambling disorder can eventually lead to debt and bankruptcy. However, problem gamblers can potentially improve almost every aspect of their lives by seeking treatment and support.
Recovery can be an arduous process, which is why the CCGNJ offers multiple recovery resources on their website and through their 24/7 hotline, 800-GAMBLER. These resources give people the assistance and encouragement they need - including educational materials, Gamblers Anonymous meetings listings, and more - to achieve long-term recovery from problematic casino gambling in AC and other disordered gambling behaviors.
"The CCGNJ strives to help everyone that resolves to start or maintain their recovery from disordered gambling in the new year," said Neva Pryor, Executive Director of the CCGNJ. "Through inner commitment and support from resources like family and Gamblers Anonymous, anyone can change their lives for the better."
For treatment, support, and hope, call or text the CCGNJ's 24/7, confidential hotline, 800-GAMBLER. To learn more about the CCGNJ, visit their website at https://800gambler.org.
