It is against our rules to come into the neveraloneclub.org chatroom and recommend meetings, groups, or chat rooms that are based on the 12-step approach. We consider such recommendations as spam, and they are not welcome in the neveraloneclub.org chatroom.
We encourage our members to respect our rules and focus on providing sincere and authentic support to one another.
At Never Alone Club, we support the individual's right to choose their path to recovery and are committed to providing a platform where people can share their experiences and offer insight into alternative approaches to recovery. Let us all work together to create a safe, supportive, and inclusive community that fosters healing and growth.
Some good ground rules for a space like this include: being kind and respectful to others, refraining from discussing or promoting 12-step programs, avoiding discrimination or hateful language, respecting each other's privacy and not sharing personal information without consent, and following chat guidelines and instructions. Additionally, it's important to remember that everyone here is trying to recover and overcome their struggles, so let's offer support and encouragement to one another.
We do not tolerate antisocial (bullying, threatening, trolling) or predatory (seeking money or sex etc) behavior.
It is never okay for anyone to make you feel discouraged or bring you pain through gossip, sabotage, or shunning. In recovery, we must foster a safe and compassionate environment where everyone feels respected, heard, and supported. If you have experienced prejudice or been harmed by another persons words or actions, it is important to speak out and seek help from professionals, friends, and family. You are not alone in your journey.
Our philosophy is to live and let live, treating each other like responsible adults. We dislike telling people what to do or getting involved in arguments, but if necessary, we will step in to maintain an appropriate level of decorum.

WORKING WITH OTHERS
That's great that you want to help others! One way you can help is by simply listening to their stories and offering support and encouragement. You can also share your own experiences and offer advice based on what has worked for you. It's important to remember that everyone's journey is different and what works for one person may not work for another. Additionally, you can utilize resources and tools available on the Never Alone Club website to aid in your support of others. Above all, it's important to be non-judgmental and respectful of others' experiences and choices.
