NACHATROOM.NET - General guidelines

The message is that an addict, any addict, can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live. Our message is hope and the promise of freedom.

Here in NA Chat we try to get people connected to their local Narcotics Anonymous meetings. The NA program is the 12 steps, worked with a sponsor, who we find in live meetings.

We are one of 63,000+ groups of NA! NA meetings are held everywhere: Coffee shops, beaches, parks, and church basements and more. Our group holds its meetings on the Internet.

We are not affiliated with NA World Services. 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.NET.

NACHATROOM.NET - A word about traditions

When presented with a conflict between traditions one and three, we will interpret the 12 traditions of NA exactly as they are written: Our common welfare should come first.

"Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends on NA unity."

Part of being a supportive environment means taking you at your best and your worst. Doing so cannot be at the expense of the entire group.

Our 3rd Tradition states that "the only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using." In accordance with that, we don't have any guidelines about participating in chat while under the influence so long as members who participate while intoxicated are not abusive or disruptive.

For our group unity, and so as to carry our message effectively to the newcomer who is still suffering, we need a welcoming and non-confrontational environment. We need to mitigate threats, attacks, and disruptions from both inside and outside of the fellowship.

If a moderator says you need to change the subject or stop doing something, please follow their instructions. We're here to let you know when a conversation is getting out of hand or not conducive to our group unity or an atmosphere of recovery.

NACHATROOM.NET - A word about some things we're not.

We do not discuss ways and means of using drugs, how to beat a piss test, or give advice on tapering, "do I have a medical emergency" , dosage, overdosage, etc. There is another chatroom focused on harm reduction at www.tripsit.me. We neither endorse nor oppose them.

A list of alterntives to NA is provided here. Another highly supportive online community with a thriving chatroom and mixture of steppers/non steppers is /r/stopdrinking on Reddit.

We neither endorse nor oppose these outside entities. We just want you to be aware that there have been beacons lit for you all over the Internet. You never have to use again.

Our primary purpose is to carry the message of Narcotics Anonymous to the addict who is still suffering. If you are a family member or friend of an addict, please visit www.nar-anon.org.

We can't tell you if your loved one is an addict, but you are welcome to send them here.

NA has no opinion on outside issues: There are other 12-step fellowships with specific focus on addictive behaviors (gamblers anonymous, overeaters anonymous, sex addicts anonymous, SCA, SLAA) (links provided) if you are struggling with those issues and think you would benefit from a group who focuses on them and has experience in recovering from them.

NACHATROOM.NET - All are welcome, but not all behaviors.

  • Being banned from the chatroom for disruptive behavior does NOT mean you're unwelcome at NA or its 63,000+ other groups. We'll usually give you a few chances to work on your behavior.

  • No "sourcing" drugs, do not ask for a drug dealer, ask for drugs, or offer drugs.

  • NACHATROOM.NET does not sign court slips or cooperate with court/supervision officials. We have no way to confirm you are actually the person chatting here today.

  • Do not ask other members to give you money or solicit them as clients for professional services.

  • No endorsement of for-profit rehabs, clinics, and sober living facilities.

  • No abusive behavior. This includes threats, personal insults, hate speech, racism, sexism, homophobic remarks, encouraging suicide, promoting drinking or using over recovery, and other matters inappropriate for a recovery forum.

  • Group members who "unmask" or "out" other members and/or air personal vendettas or attacks on social media sites (i.e. Facebook) will be banned for a very long time.

  • Please safeguard your anonymity! Be careful disclosing your identity or full name. Not everyone here is working the 12 steps or understands/respects your anonymity.

  • We strive to create a helpful and safe environment. NACHATROOM.NET is most helpful when all community members have a chance to weigh in. NACHATROOM.NET is safest when all communications are done out in the open.

  • Be friendly with your friends. We allow profanity, just do not direct it at other members in an abusive manner.

  • If a newcomer mentions a drug name in the context of explaining what they're going through and how we can help, let it go, but steer the conversation away from using and drugs, to the solution and "what you are going to do about your drug problem and how we can help."

  • No surveys or professionals/providers looking for input "from addicts." NO OUTSIDE LINKS. This is a support group. We are not here for research, education, training, or survey purposes.

  • This is not a dating/hookup site. Don't age/sex/location us, beg for members of the opposite sex to PM you.
