Mental Health in Tempe

Compulsive gambling is a growing problem, especially among seniors and teens. Much like alcoholism, it may initially be behavior that one is able to hide, but eventually it becomes the central focus of one's life and all other activities become secondary. The Arizona Council on Compulsive Gambling is an excellent resource for those who are trying to overcome their addiction. The council provides information specifically geared toward young people, the elderly, and male and females who have this addiction. The council can also make referrals to local Gambler's Anonymous meetings, which meet often and are free of charge. For further details, call 602-212-0278.2
