InTheRooms (ITR) has spent the past year planning, developing, and testing a brand new technology for carrying the message of recovery online worldwide.
It’s a Free Online Social Network for the Global Recovery Community.
ITR currently has 203,000+ members in 136 countries and has the largest AA group (93,000+ members), NA group (78,000+ members), Alanon group (8,000+) and Naranon group (2,000+) in the world.
The first-ever LIVE Global 12 Step Video Meetings include 26 regularly scheduled weekly meetings – 12 AA, 12 NA, 1 Alanon and 1 Naranon, with more to come.
There is no software to download and anyone can attend, whether you are a member of InTheRooms.com or not. There are no requirements for membership to attend face-to-face 12 step fellowship meetings and the same rule applies on ITR. Visitors select the “Guest” option instead of logging in at InTheRooms.com if they don’t want to register to be an ITR member.
The goal for the Online Video Meetings was to replicate the feeling that someone gets when they go to a face-to-face 12 step meeting, as best as possible in the virtual space. InTheRooms wanted these meetings to touch the heart of the recovery community worldwide.
This is something new to the Recovery Community so they’ve had some critics, however one thing has stayed consistent: recovering people from all over the world are connecting in ways they never thought possible and it’s bringing our brothers and sisters in recovery that much closer.
IntheRooms used web technologies from http://www.TokBox.com and http://www.Pusher.com to develop Live Online Global 12 Step Video Meetings.
