Welcome to the Never Alone Club!
This chatroom is a safe, supportive space for individuals recovering from alcohol, drugs, and/or depression to share their stories and experiences. Here you can find understanding and empathy from others who may have faced similar challenges.
About Our Chatroom
The Never Alone Club is a website and chatroom community that fosters an atmosphere of recovery from drugs and alcohol.
We provide a secular and non 12-step affiliated environment for people to find support and resources for their recovery.
Our core beliefs include that 12-step groups are spiritually abusive, have a high failure rate, and ostracize or penalize members who do not agree with their core tenets.
We we respect the autonomy of individuals to choose their own paths in recovery. We are trying to catch people who are falling in between the cracks -- and finding neither help nor hope in a "12-step" paradigm that claims these people don't exist - or that if they DO, it's always somehow "their fault" that these programs are totally unhelpful in their recovery efforts.
We are all drawn to others who can relate to us and provide us with support and guidance. This can be offered without baiting the hook with a MANIFESTLY religious (or so-called "spiritual") conversion.
We don't capitalize on your fundamental human needs by publishing and selling books or begging for "donations." We are a supportive CHATROOM.
We are a free public service and we don't want anything other than for you to get better. We will begin secular meetings in a NON 12 STEP FORMAT sometime in April 2023. Our "Daily Ned-itation" is a trial run to see what the bot may propose for recovery topics.

We won't generally interrupt a discussion that is not offensive or triggering to the group. We do however have a legal and fiscal responsibility to HALT any dangerous or illegal activities or advice that is under dispute or viewed -- at our SOLE discretion -- as harmful to participants.
Some people do not want to receive private messages at all, from anyone, for any reason and its none of our business why. YOU set your own bottom line behaviors around private messaging. Some women don't feel safe being messaged by the opposite sex. Other people don't like gossip and want to keep it in the main room.
Just edit your profile and change "Disable Private Messaging" to "Yes."
