Christian Recovery A Christian Perspective Christian Recovery

Because of the involvement of a family member, our hearts have been drawn to the Christian Recovery of Compulsive Gambling and Gambling Addiction. After doing considerable research on the internet on compulsive gambling and participating in the Recovery Process ( Gambler's Anonymous ) with a loved one in a Support Group ( Gamanon ), we would like to share what we have found with all who visit this web site.

We have actively been involved with a support group and have been evaluating many available resources, organizations, treatment clinics, web sites, and support groups.
