NACHATROOM.ORG - Guidelines
We are here to carry the message of Narcotics Anonymous and help the addict who wants to stop using drugs and find a new way to live.
This chatroom is closed to addicts only, no students or outside observers please. We cannot tell you if your loved one is an addict but you can send them here or visit http://www.nar-anon.org.
Please be mindful of how you represent NA and/or this website while you are here. It is inappropriate to beg people to go to meetings or use abusive language towards other chatters here. Honesty without compassion is brutality, this is a confrontation and judgement free zone!
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.
Many people who arrive here are searching the web for infomation about NA. This may be someone's first exposure to an NA group. This is not the place for aggression and confrontation, i.e. "calling people out on their shit" or telling them "work the steps or die, MF'er."
We reserve the right to mute or ban people who are abusive or disruptive and/or representing NACHATROOM.ORG poorly with a "message" that is exceptionally hostile.
NACHATROOM.ORG - RULE NUMBER 1
The chatroom is open 24/7 and the discussion is not always recovery related. Moderators have a color symbol next to their names, it is their job to refocus the discussion if it is getting out of hand. We ask that the room remain a safe and positive atmosphere of recovery at all times.
A topic change, warning, kick or mute is at the moderator's discretion. That said, we do have a few basic guidelines for moderators and we expect them to be courteous at all times.
NACHATROOM.ORG - BASIC RULES
NACHATROOM.ORG - A word about some things we're not.
Discussion of sexual compulsion, addiction to pornography, etc is not an appropriate topic for the room. Please private message a moderator (people with symbols next to their name) for a confidential referral to other sites that can help you.
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.
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.
