NACHATROOM.ORG - Self Support/Contribution Information
We had 190,000+ unique visitors in 2017, and we'd like to extend an invitation to other 12-step groups and fellowships so we can help reach even more than that. Please contact us if you're a 12-step group that wants to run a chat with meetings and/or in hotline mode.
Hosting fees on Amazon Web Services have been reduced to to $20 a month when we pre pay for a three year term (We have paid the bill through 5/2021, bandwidth costs $8-15 a month.)
Our three domains cost [ $30 a year ] to renew and they are paid through the year 2025.
We got rid of Mibbit in 2017, which was $99 a year. The "Kiwi" replacement is free. We noticed Mibbit was serving ads for alcohol and for-profit treatment centers and decided to get rid of it.
Security scanning from getipintel.net costs an additional [ $200 per year.] and is justified by prolonged periods of attacks/trolling/harassment some of you may remember. Contributions of [ $461.65 USD in 2017 ] did not cover expenses in 2017 but our expenses will be lower in 2018.
All proceeds go to operating expenses, and in years where we do not meet our expenses the moderator team donates the difference so we can keep the lights on for you.

We would like to re-emphasize one more time that we are NOT "NA" and we are NOT "NA World Services." We are just one of 63,000+ local GROUPS of NA, meaning we are a group of addicts gathered together carrying the message of recovery and holding 15 meetings a week in the Narcotics Anonymous format. We are no different than the next group meeting in the park or your local church basement. We just have our group's meetings on the Internet, and there are surely costs associated with that.
I want to quickly acknowledge that it isn't money or technology that keeps NACHATROOM.ORG alive. It's the people who come in and greet and welcome newcomers, it's the people who make this their "home" and keep the chat going.
It's the hundreds to thousands of hours of effort shared by our core membership.
We opened our doors as nachatroom.org in 2006 and would like to thank untold numbers of you who came in here and sat down and listened to a newcomer and held that person's story in your hands with them.
We need you more than we need your money.
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.
NA trademarks and literature belong to NA.ORG. | IRC Network, chatroom, and "Bots" are provided by PTP Recovery Network an unaffiliated Internet Relay Chat system and "virtual clubhouse" for online support and recovery groups.
