NACHATROOM.NET - Self Support/Contribution Information
Effective March 2018, after 12 years in existence the NA Chatroom divested its chat platform and hosted servers into an "virtual clubhouse" called PTP Recovery Network. The NA Chatroom is now only responsible for $30 a month in rent plus renewal of its domain registrations, and the platform is now open to other recovery/support groups who want what we have here.
The group has never come close to supporting the infrastructure necessary in order to run through its own contributions and its founder would like very much to move on to other areas of service while continuing to work on the bots and tools we enjoy here.
Cues are being taken from the "long form" of AA's Tradition Six, which states:
Problems of money, property, and authority may easily divert us from our primary spiritual aim. We think, therefore, that any considerable property of genuine use to A.A. should be separately incorporated and managed, thus dividing the material from the spiritual. An A.A. group, as such, should never go into business. Secondary aids to A.A., such as clubs or hospitals which require much property or administration, ought to be incorporated and so set apart that, if necessary, they can be freely discarded by the groups. Hence such facilities ought not to use the A.A. name. Their management should be the sole responsibility of those people who financially support them. For clubs, A.A. managers are usually preferred. But hospitals, as well as other places of recuperation, ought to be well outside A.A. -- and medically supervised. While an A.A. group may cooperate with anyone, such cooperation ought never go so far as affiliation or endorsement, actual or implied. An A.A. group can bind itself to no one.

I want to quickly acknowledge that it isn't money or technology that keeps NACHATROOM.NET 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.NET.
