Can You Attend an NA Meeting Online?

Narcotics Anonymous has online meetings available daily at NAChatrom.org, 12StepForums.net, NA-Recovery.org and NAVoices.com; each site publishes meeting times. Meeting formats are generally chatroom style. General rules of conduct are similar to physical NA meetings, including policies on anonymity, privacy, member harassment and drug talk.

Most sites adhere to the standard 12-step program with similar formats and features, including sponsors. All sites prohibit distribution of contact information between participants, such as email addresses, phone numbers, instant messenger handles or Facebook contacts. Some online NA support providers believe that online meetings may provide a broader sampling of addicts from different places, which can help the recovery process.
