BET CAREFUL

The Nebraska Gamblers Assistance Program wants you to know that gambling can be as addictive as illegal substances or alcohol. If you have a gambling plan, you stay in control of the time and money you spend on gambling to reduce your exposure to a gambling addiction.

If your gambling already controls you, the Nebraska Gamblers Assistance Program pays for counseling so that you can get your life back. Our trained counselors can help you with all the friends and family, legal and financial trouble gambling causes.
