Prevention

Gambling is a personal choice.  Most people don’t think about gambling ever becoming a problem in their life.  If you choose to gamble, make low-risk choices and balance the amount of gambling with other social activities and hobbies.

Zepf Center prevention gambling program offers…

  • http://www.howdoyouplay.info/. How Do You Play? is a website designed to help individuals know the risks of gambling.
  • “Stacked Deck,” an evidence based prevention model for adolescents.  The model helps youth make smart choices and understand the risks associated with gambling behaviors. Please contact us at 419-841-7701 Ext. 6011 for more information.
  • A Speakers Bureau to address prevention of problem gambling available to all ages.  Our team is available to speak at community events, organizations, churches, schools, etc. The presentations are free. Please contact us at 419-841-7701 Ext. 6011 for more information.

Treatment

Gambling has become a socially accepted activity.  Most people who gamble can enjoy gambling as a form of entertainment and understand there is rarely a financial gain.  However, when problems arise from gambling behaviors, help is available.  The loss of money is generally the first identified problem but other problems may arise including relationship issues, health concerns, depressed mood, anxiety, and even thoughts of suicide. There is hope. 

Zepf Center's Problem Gambling treatment program offers free and confidential individual and group counseling for anyone who thinks that their gambling may be a problem.  Please call us today.
