My friend Kelly (a recovering affected other) and myself (a recovering compulsive gambler) have joined up to create a new monthly series to help give a voice to those who are on the other side of our gambling harm.
In this episode we are joined by the ladies (Amy, Brandy, and Robin) from the Northeast Problem Gambling Resources Center part of the NY Council on Problem Gambling to talk about the process of helping affected others of problem gamblers.
