Alabama Gambling Addiction Hotline

Alabama is one of only five US states that does not have its own state lottery. However, there are three large casinos in-state, and track betting is prevalent. Around 2.2% of Alabama adults are estimated to have a gambling problem, according to the National Council on Problem Gambling. This is a low percentage compared to the US average of around 6% but still represents almost 100,000 Alabama residents with gambling issues.

Furthermore, state funding for gambling addiction help is extremely low in Alabama. It’s around a penny per capita, which is $0.22 less per capita than the national average. Gambling isn’t just an issue in The Yellowhammer State. It’s an issue nationwide. Fortunately, there’s help available to you, at no cost. Let us help you stop problem gambling today.
