<p>NACHATROOM.ORG - Online Narcotics Anonymous Meetings & Chatroom <p> <p>We were a group of Narcotics Anonymous with two daily online meetings where addicts seeking recovery can chat 24/7 for support and fellowship. It's free. No registration is required, and we don't ask for your contact info or e-mail address. A first name or a chat handle will suffice.<p> Just type a nickname into the chat box above and click "connect" to instantly join the room and begin talking to other recovering addicts who are here to share their experience, strength, and hope with each other!</p> You can choose to remain anonymous if you wish, the chatroom will give you a name like "NAGuest123" by default. Don't be afraid to just listen. Or share whatever you feel comfortable sharing, especially if it will get you through today.<p> We welcome you whether you identify as an addict, an "alcoholic," (in NA, alcohol is a drug), or are just starting to wonder whether you have a problem.<p> Our primary purpose is to carry the message of NA to the addict who is still suffering. In NA, we like to say that NA = "Never Alone." <p> NA has only ONE promise to make, and that is: <p> "The message is that an addict, any addict, can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live.... That is all we have to give." (NA Basic Text, 5th Ed., p. 65) <p> At all other times this is "open chat," making it more like what we call "fellowship" in NA, rather than what we would call a "meeting." Feel free to suggest a recovery topic or type !jft to play the NA Just For Today meditation.<p> We have no affiliation whatsoever with Narcotics Anonymous World Services. We are merely "one group" out of more than 63,000 groups. Nor are we even the only NA group online. <p> Please stick around and greet visitors! This may be their first exposure to an NA group. <p> <p>Any two or three addicts gathered together may call themselves an N.A. group, provided that, as a group, they have no other affiliation. This website is not endorsed by any Narcotics Anonymous entity other than NACHATROOM.ORG. This website no longer hosts a chatroom meetings in the "NA" format.<p> I don't care how attached anyone is to them, they're all disease and no solution. People aren't going to meetings or reading literature. You need to give them an engaging topic while you still have them on the line.<p> We have moved to <a href="https://www.neveraloneclub.org" target="new">https://www.neveraloneclub.org</a> <p> Our official blog is <a href="https://blog.neveraloneclub.org" target="new">https://blog.neveraloneclub.org</a>. This will give you some examples of what a discussion topic may look like in a future meeting. <p> Meetings and recovery topics will resume on NEVERALONECLUB.ORG in April of 2023. They will be in a secular, non-NA format. <p>

Create a Safe Welcoming and Supportive Environment


I believe that it is crucial for our visitors to feel welcome and encouraged, regardless of where they may be in their recovery journey. This can be done by showing empathy and respect towards each other, avoiding criticism or judgment, and creating a safe and supportive environment.

One way to show empathy is to actively listen and engage with others. It is important to acknowledge and understand their experiences without invalidating their feelings or beliefs. This can be done by asking questions, offering advice (without being prescriptive), and sharing your own experiences in a non-judgmental way.

Another important aspect is to respect each other’s boundaries and identities. This means accepting and valuing each person for who they are, regardless of their background, beliefs, or experiences. It also means avoiding language that may be offensive or harmful, and being willing to learn and grow when called out on any missteps.

Finally, creating a safe and supportive environment involves promoting hope and inspiration, while avoiding negative or triggering content. This can be done by sharing stories of success, offering resources and support, and celebrating milestones, both big and small. It also involves being aware of our own biases and assumptions, and being willing to challenge and reevaluate them when necessary. In summary, to be maximally helpful in welcoming and encouraging our visitors without criticism or judgment, we must show empathy, respect each other’s boundaries and identities, and create a safe and supportive environment. By doing so, we can foster a sense of community and belonging, and help each other along the path of recovery.
