Getting Help From Gambling Addiction

March is Problem Gambling Awareness Month and the Illinois Department of Human Services says that help is available. Those with a gambling addiction often hide their problem from family members, so the Department of Human Services is working to let the public know about what support services are available and what signs and symptoms to look out for.  Spokesperson of the DHS Patrick Laughlin says that multiple providers will present options available.



Laughlin says one valuable resource is 1-800-GAMBLER to help those with gambling addictions.



If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, visit the website weknowthefeeling.org. Community groups will be holding in-person and virtual awareness.
