Welcome to the Outreach division!

Gaming can lead to problems in a person’s life and be just as serious as drug, alcohol and gambling.  This troubling issue needs to be addressed by our society, just as those addictions have been. 

Outreach is the public service division that assists in informing the public of the dangers of excessive game playing.  We were formed, 2014, at the request of our recovering members, so they can focus on their singleness of purpose - recovery.

We offer tools for you, so you can reach out and educate and inform your community, school, college, family, parents, church, law-enforecemnt, politicians, professionals, other 12-step grouups, about gaming addiction.  

Please donate!

This organization is financially supported by you. If the information you have found here is useful, please make donations, so we can continue our mission. To make a donation, please Donate Here. We are a registered 501c3 organization in the U.S., so all U.S. donations are tax deductible.  Thank you for supporting our Community!

Tools:

2.  Provide resources for education of the general public of the possible problems associated with gaming and the potential for recovery. 

3.  An archive of articles about the "dark-side" of gaming, since 2002 in the Gaming Addiction in the News forums.   Topics include:

5.  Providing recovering members a place to offer their services.
