NACHATROOM.ORG - Online NA Chat and Meetings, Narcotics Anonymous Chatroom

Welcome! We are an Internet-based community of Narcotics Anonymous members with two daily online meetings where people seeking recovery can chat 24/7 for support and fellowship.

You do not need to be a member of NA or identify as an "addict" to participate in our group. If you want to stop using alcohol or other drugs and find a new way to live, you are welcome here!

Our primary purpose is to carry the message of NA to those who are suffering without a solution.

Our meetings are text/chat based and group members participate by typing their shares. You do not need a webcam or a microphone, simply log into the chatroom when it's time for the meeting.

Please stick around and greet visitors! This may be their first exposure to an NA group.

 

"I don't know where to begin or what to say."

That's okay, we've all been there. You can listen or share whatever you feel comfortable sharing.

If you'd like, you can just share your first name only. But you don't have to.

Your "IP address" is scrambled/masked. It is visible to you, but not to others.

If you're new (and don't mind sharing that) we would love to welcome/encourage you.

In NA, we like to say that NA = "Never Alone."

 

What are Online Meetings like?

Closed Discussion: The group checks in and you talk about where you're at in your recovery.

Topic/Discussion meetings: A randomly selected recovery topic, the NA JFT, or a short reading selected by the chairperson.

The first Tuesday of every month is a Speaker Meeting at 8:00PM. The speaker shares their experience, strength and hope -- where they came from and how they got to where they are today.

During our meetings, a volunteer uses our chat robot (JFT_BOT) to play readings and moderate the room so that only one person can share at a time.

It is customary to refrain from advice-giving, cross talk, or "solving others" after they share.

NACHATROOM.ORG does not cooperate with courts, clinics, or supervision officials. Any cards purporting to verify online meeting attendance at NACHATROOM.ORG are not authentic.

If you are experiencing a technical issue, found yourself banned, or can't keep up with the text-based meeting please try a telephone-based meeting you can call into at nabyphone.com

 

Information for Concerned Family and Friends

Most of our meetings are closed to addicts or people who think they might have a drug problem.

Nar-Anon Family Groups are a 12-Step Fellowship for family & friends of addicts. Feel free to make information about Narcotics Anonymous (including this web site) available to others.

People often have different attitudes about the amount or frequency of their drug and alcohol use and may not agree with your concerns. See Am I an Addict? A professional screening/assessment may help identify whether someone is using drugs or alcohol in a way that is harmful to them.

We're not able to answer this question about someone whose alcohol/drug use is alarming to you.

(By the time people find us in a search, they're already starting to wonder that for themselves.)

There is a chatroom for concerned Family & Friends of addicts at https://www.naranonchat.com.

Some are of the opinion that addicts "need to find their bottom" in order to seek help. Many of us die trying to find it! We want everyone to get the help they need with their substance abuse issues whether or not they feel that Narcotics Anonymous (and/or our website) is right for them.

Contact SAMHSA's National Helpline (link) at 1-800-662-HELP (4357) for information and referrals.

For those who are receptive to help but not interested in AA/NA, /r/stopdrinking is a popular subreddit with its own associated chatroom. We neither endorse nor oppose these provided links.

That said, OUR chatroom is recovery-focused and carries the message of Narcotics Anonymous.

 

NACHATROOM.ORG has no affiliation with NA World Services ("NA")

NA members hold nearly 67,000 meetings weekly in 139 countries. We hold our meetings on the Internet. When there is no meeting in progress, we try to carry the NA message to the newcomer seeking information about NA. We are here to welcome and encourage the newcomer, but also to socialize and support each other. The room is open 24/7 and the topic may or may not be recovery related when there is NOT a meeting in progress.

NA's trademarks are used to the extent permitted by NA Intellectual Property Bulletin #1, in the section under "Use by NA groups." We do not use the NA logo on our site and feel this could potentially misrepresent affiliation with NA/NAWS. Any links to NA publications, bulletins, and informational pamphlets (IPs) must link directly to those materials on NA.ORG
