Helping a friend on gambling issues

Please help!
I am sure that my friend has gambling problems already but she just won't admit it.
How can I help her???

In the United States we have an organization called gamblers anonymous. If there isn't one where you are located, try looking for their website for additional information. Someone once told me there are about 7 addictive behaviors and they are very difficult to overcome without assistance but it might be possible for you to help the person seek treatment.

Thanks Dena. Recently she told me that she's been going through the depressive state. I found this article about depression chat rooms . I'm wondering if this is effective for my friend.
