The South Carolina Education Lottery (SCEL) seeks to increase public awareness of problem gambling.
If you think someone in your home has a problem, take the quiz to determine if you are living with a problem gambler and read tips for family and friends. If you determine you need assistance, on this website you will find treatment information, treatment locations, meeting schedules for Gambler’s Anonymous and Gam-Anon, and an avenue to contact a counselor on our contact page. Answers to common problem gambling concerns are addressed in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) portion of the website, http://www.playresponsiblysc.com/.
Please remember, help is available for problem gamblers and their families. Treatment is confidential, but more importantly, it is effective.
