ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Before Gambling Project
The Before Gambling Project is an independent effort to reduce problem gambling and gambling harm through public awareness and improvements across the industry from operators to treatment facilities.
The project is driven by relentless internal curiosity and belief in an open sharing of best practices to most quickly and efficiently address problem gambling and gambling harm.
Prevention + Strategy
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.” There is a lot more we can do to prevent gambling from having a negative impact on the lives of those that choose to gamble.
This project strives to encourage & facilitate conversations that will ultimately lead to fresh ideas and best practices being implemented by stakeholders as they do their part to prevent problem gambling and gambling harm.
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.
The best way to reduce problem gambling and gambling harm is by working closely together with all stakeholders. If you share a common interest in reducing problem gambling and gambling harm, let’s connect.
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.
