Welcome to SOS Gambling Addiction

Gambling can be fun, but it can also become an addiction.

This website is a collaborative project of 17 German-speaking cantons. It provides information about the dangers of gambling, possible consequences and various options for seeking help, not only for Gamblers themselves but also their loved ones.

If you speak German, you can call our helpline anonymously and get professional help. You can also ask questions online; however, this service is only available in German. Your questions will be answered within two working days. Both services are free.

It is possible to have an interpreter present for a consultation. Further information is available here.
