NA MEETING LOCATOR:
NACHATROOM.ORG MEETING TIMES
Online meetings are held every day at 3:00pm and 8:00pm EST. There is also a "candlelight meeting" every Saturday night at 11:59PM EST.
You can also type !nextmeeting into the chat to see how many hours until our next meeting.
All Links open in new windows so as to not interrupt chat.
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."
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?
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
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.
There is a chatroom for concerned Family & Friends of addicts at https://www.naranonchat.com.
