The Before Gambling Project
The Before Gambling Project is an independent effort to reduce problem gambling and gambling harm through public awareness and education.
It’s been said so many times, but Benjamin Franklin was spot on when he proclaimed “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
Knowledge is power and the backbone of prevention is education. This project wasn’t created to scare people, but rather to give them information so they can decide what is best for them.
If you or someone you know is struggling from a gambling problem, consult with your doctor or therapist, contact your local problem gambling support network or check out https://www.aftergambling.com for resources and tips.
