Welcome to the Outreach division of OLGA!
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 in educating people on the dangers of excessive game playing. We were formed, 2014, at the request of our reovering members, so they can focus on their singleness of purpose - recovery.
Tools we offer for your use, so you can reach out and educate your community, school, college, family, parents, church, law-enforecemnt, politicians, professionals, other 12-step grouups, about gaming addiction are:
1. A List of Things that Need to Be Done About Gaming Addiction.
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:
4. We assists with starting OLGA/OLG-Anon chapters and face-to-face meetings.
