Support groups

Entry into gambling support group meetings is by referral from a PGF Services counsellor

Please call 0800 664 262 and ask to book an assessment session with a counsellor from your city.

These support groups are for people who would like to work towards and maintain being ‘gamble free’. Significant others are also welcome. The meetings have a semi-structured group format, and our facilitators lead the group in learning activities and support the group to remain focussed and supportive of one another.

What's it like?

Here's what someone who joined our support group said:

“The PGF Auckland Support and Maintenance Group has been instrumental in keeping me gamble free. It is the sharing, vigorous discussions and exercises that I have found to be most helpful in fostering and maintaining my strength and determination to abstain.
The group is run by a small dedicated and compassionate team of counsellors who facilitate each meeting providing a fertile ground for learning and growing by all participants be they in a time of need or in a period of abstinence wishing to further strengthen their resolve and pass on their experiences.
Thank you all for your support and guidance over the years”
