Gamblers Anonymous (G.A.) is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from a gambling problem.
The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop gambling.
A number of open meetings will take place in the Leinster region this month, to increase awareness of Gamblers Anonymous and recovery from compulsive gambling. On Tuesday 25 September at 8pm an open meeting will be held at Dalgan Park, Navan, Co. Meath. These meetings are open to anyone who has concerns about their own gambling or that of a loved one.
