Ken Pomerance and Ron Tannebaum started “In The Rooms” with a simple goal in mind: to give recovering addicts a place to meet and socialize when they’re not in face-to-face meetings.
In The Rooms is described as “Your recovery space when you can’t meet face-to-face”. All you need to get started with this online resource is to create a free account. Ideally use a laptop or desktop computer. The site offers online meetings for several 12 Step Fellowships and other recovery options. It also has lots of interesting useful resources, blogs, articles and links to other recovery resources.
