Counseling Services

The Nebraska Gamblers Assistance Program (GAP) started in the early 1990s when Nebraska approved the lottery. Since that time, GAP has paid for confidential counseling with certified problem gambling counselors for many Nebraskans and their families who suffer a gambling addiction. Because gambling can become an uncontrollable urge to keep gambling despite the toll it takes on your life (Mayo Clinic), professional counseling helps get your life back on track.

GAP also offers free and confidential counseling electronically, connecting you with your counselor from anywhere in Nebraska from the comfort of your home or office computer or mobile device. Electronic counseling sessions are still face-to-face. You and your counselor can see and talk to each other as if you were in the same room without the inconvenience of travel. You can select and work with any of our trained counselors from anywhere in Nebraska. Please ask about how to receive free and confidential counseling service electronically when you schedule your appointment with any of the agencies listed below.
