Recovery is for Everyone
This September the Bronx PGRC is excited to celebrate Recovery Month! The National Recovery Month theme for 2021 is “Recovery is for Everyone: Every Person, Every Family, Every Community” because it reminds us all that people in recovery from problem gambling and those who support them, that recovery belongs to us all. Recovery is for everyone because it benefits everyone. The Bronx PGRC is proud to share the National Recovery Month theme and adopt it as our own.
While it may be tempting to characterize recovery as a universal experience or single journey, our community is proof that there are as many pathways to and of recovery as there are people. Our strength is our diversity and because of who we are, the recovery community has unique opportunities to learn, challenge, grow, and dream. Problem gambling does not impact every person in the same way, so it is with that same uniqueness that people find their paths to recovery.
Gambling disorder is most often occurring with individuals who also have anxiety disorders and depression disorders
- Only about 10% of people with a gambling disorder reach out for help
- Recovery is possible and there are many pathways to get there
