FAMILY

CASON assists family members/spouses on their own to develop strategies for coping with the effects of a gambling/gaming problem. The person with the gambling/gaming issue doesn’t need to come to CASON for you to get help. We can help family members to:

  • Understand the problem and its effects
  • Find ways to cope with the problem
  • Provide resources that can help with finances, legal issues and other concerns
  • Manage stress, depression, anxiety and anger to heal family relationships
