Individuals addicted to gambling can be offered counselling and support through the National Responsible Gambling Programme (NRGP).
The South African Responsible Gambling Foundation (SARGF) provides free and confidential treatment and counselling to those affected by problem gambling and their immediate family members. For the past 16 years, the SARGF has treated more than 16, 000 people. We also educate South Africans about the potential harmful effect of problem gambling and responsible gambling.
Our counselling line operates 24 hours and 7 seven days a week. We provide free support, information, assessment and referral for face- to- face counselling with one of our treatment network of mental health professionals throughout the country with our treatment programme.
