Calendar Event Sorting

At the top, the 24/7/365 SAMHSA Disaster Helpline and similar links.

Next, Bundled “All Day” Events

Some organizations (like 12 step recovery programs, AA, NA, AlAnon, etc.) have so many events happening throughout the day that they need to be in a bundled listing to spare endless scrolling.  Often there is a link to look up events by zip code and other criteria.

Lastly, Time-Specific Events

So you can see what’s happening in the next hours, time specific events are tagged and listed by start time from 12:01am early morning to 11:59pm late night.  There can be events and warmlines operating in different time zones, though we try to list all in Oregon’s Pacific Time Zone.

Oregon Recovery Center Hotline

Reach out.

We’re here for you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Oregon Recovery Center Hotline is a free and confidential statewide resource that can connect you to harm reduction, treatment, recovery, and supportive services.


Call Now – (833) 975 – 0505
or
Use this Link For Live Chat
https://orrecoverycenterhotline.org/

Connecting you to the services you need.

When you call us or chat with us online, you’ll talk to one of our caring, trained Peer Support Specialists. We can help you decide what kind of services you need by asking you a few questions, and we can connect you to them through your local Behavioral Health Resource Network (BHRN). Learn more about the kind of services available to you

Received a fine for possession?

If you received a citation for possessing small amounts of drugs in Oregon (called a “Class E violation”), you can have the fine waived by calling the Oregon Recovery Center Hotline and completing a health assessment.

1. Call us at (833) 975-0505. Our trained Peer Support Specialists will provide a screening for substance use, mental health and other supportive service referrals you might need.

2. Once the screening is complete, we will refer you to appropriate services.

3. We will email you a letter that confirms you have completed the health assessment. Bring it to court to waive your fine.

Harm reduction

Harm reduction saves lives. These services keep people who use drugs, like fentanyl or alcohol, safe by offering non-judgmental care that improves their quality of life and health, prevents and manages injury and disease, and prevents fatal overdoses. Harm reduction honors the dignity and wellbeing of each person.

Treatment

Treatment combines medical care, like supporting people through withdrawal symptoms or starting medication that helps with cravings, with services that help you learn coping skills. Treatment can happen in an inpatient or outpatient setting, and you and your treatment provider decide together what kind of treatment is right for you.

Recovery

Being in recovery means making changes over time that can help you feel better, live life on your own terms, and work toward reaching your goals. Recovery looks different for everyone and might include medication-assisted treatment, self-help or support groups, recovery coaching, or being part of recovery communities.

Supportive services

A person’s recovery is best supported when they have everything they need to live well. In addition to substance use services, services like housing support, employment assistance, and food insecurity services are also available.

Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs)

Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs) are networks of organizations that provide trauma-informed, culturally specific services to people who need treatment and support for substance use concerns. The services they provide include screening for substance use disorder, substance use disorder treatment, harm reduction services, and peer support services. They also screen for health and social service needs, including housing support. Each county and Tribal area in Oregon has at least one BHRN.

04 – Resources – MAP – Moms for All Paths to Recovery – Mother’s Resource Group – 24/7 @ Facebook Group
Jun 14 all-day

 

Moms for All Paths to Recovery (MAP)

This is a group for moms who have or had children that are experiencing issues due to alcohol or drug use. We also have advocates, harm reductionists, and experts in the field of addiction in our camp.
We mothers often feel powerless to act on behalf of our own (and our family and children’s) best interests. But we know the antidote to powerlessness: KNOWLEDGE.
🚩 THAT’S WHY THIS IS NOT A SUPPORT GROUP 🚩.
It is a hub for information and resources that are relevant to our member audience, based on science, and driven by data.
We encourage you to engage with our community by posting relevant information: Trusted news reports, scientific articles, and any other information that would be helpful to our members in navigating this long and winding road.
Of course, data doesn’t speak for itself, and members are free to post their interpretations of the information shared here. We do not necessarily have to agree with everything that’s posted; critical conversations are important and make us stronger and wiser. So take what you need, and leave the rest behind.

Group rules from the admins

🔹 We support Harm Reduction (meeting people where they’re at).

🔹 We do NOT believe in the concepts of “tough love,” “enabling” and “codependency.”
🔹 We support ALL Pathways to Recovery, including FDA approved medications for opioid and alcohol use disorders.
🔹 We do NOT support drug induced homicide laws. PLEASE DO NOT JOIN THIS GROUP if you are not OPEN to LEARNING more about the above or to promote anything that is contrary to our principles.
Avoid Stigmatizing Language
It’s important to ensure that the language we use to talk about substance use is respectful and compassionate. Terms like; addict, junkie, drug abusers, etc. will be deleted (we have a complete list of suggested terms in our GUIDE section). Using neutral, medically accurate terminology when describing substance use is preferred. Please use people-first language, that focuses first on the individual.
Be Kind and Courteous
We are all on this roller-coaster ride together. Please treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required.
Do Not Advertise or Promote Your Services
But we do welcome your opinions and any other relevant information as it pertains to our groups subject matter. This needs to be a safe space without sales. Give more to this group than you take. Self-promotion, spam, and irrelevant links aren’t allowed.
Irrelevant content will be deleted.
We Are Mothers
We are not medical professionals. Our only degree is in mothering our children through addiction. We do however, bring a wealth knowledge based on our experiences.
Do Not Ask for Mony or Post Fundraisiers
We do not allow solicitation of any kind. The only fundraiser we support is for our annual Warrior Woman Retreat and to support our LIVE giveaways.
Do Not BLOCK Group Admins
MAP is an educational group, and we encourage thoughtful discussion. The full benefit, however, cannot be gained if members block Admins who comment in the group or who post relevant content, including announcements. Members who block Admins will be removed from the Group. Posts shared into MAP by individuals who have our Admins blocked will likewise be deleted since we are unable to validate the legitimacy of the post if we cannot view the information.

ALCOHOLICS & ADDICTS RECOVERY GROUP

To join this group, use the Join Group button on the facebook page:
Although we are not an official AA/NA group, this site is for 12 step discussion but should not be used instead of face to face meetings. This site is here to help others in recovery from a very harsh disease. Consequently, we welcome the opportunity to share AA/NA experience with those who would like to get clean and sober. Your anonymity is not guaranteed on this site. The fact that you are a member of the group might be seen by others. Your posts in this group are visible only to other members of the group.
GROUP GUIDELINES
All Facebook rules regarding conduct and speech are in effect in this group. You may be removed or banned from this group for the following reasons:
* The subject of CbD oil, suboxone or marijuana maintenance (These subjects have a history of heated emotional debate and are considered and outside issue)
* If you are looking for theological debates.
* If you are seeking medical advice about your prescriptions. * WE ARE NOT DOCTORS*
* If you engage in racist, disruptive, or rude speech or behavior.
* If you block any of the group’s administrators.
* If you post pictures, video, memes, hashtags, or stickers.
* If you post links as an opening post, or post links in the comments that have nothing to do with the topic being discussed in an ongoing thread.
* If you post advertisements of any sort.
* If you are trolling, seeking private messages, asking for or putting your phone number on the group walls.
* If you are not here to offer or receive help with your drug addiction or alcoholism, if you are here to promote your own agenda.
When you troll for fish, you throw a line and wait for a bite. When you’re trolling for mayhem in a discussion group, you (post) or (comment) objectionable, confrontational, or intentionally controversial statements in an attempt to generate arguments. It’s petulant, sophomoric, and harmful, and it will not be tolerated.
If you feel the need to complain about anything, please send an instant message to any of the admins.

All Pathways Recovery Support Group

Our mission is to empower women to reach their full recovery and parenting potential through peer-to-peer support and mentorship.
Our groups offer support, resources, and encouragement to women balancing recovery and parental responsibilities; while providing opportunities to build their recovery tribe.
These support groups are VERY different than some may be accustomed to. They are not centered around any particular recovery pathway, and all are welcome. We encourage and celebrate any and all efforts to improve quality of life.
Our groups and organization were created primarily for those who might avoid (for whatever personal reason) recovery programs that preach abstinence only. This group is not about exclusion. It is about joining together on the road to freedom, and respecting each other’s right to paint that picture differently.
We understand that recovery is not a box, and we do not try to cram our own personal beliefs or opinions down anyone’s windpipe. We listen. We share our personal experience. We show support.
These groups will not be received well by all. Many will struggle to embrace the lack of structure regarding what recovery is and isn’t — and that is okay. Those who wish to grow and work through those struggles will be met with plenty of opportunity and support in doing just that. We understand how difficult it can be to accept that recovery is not a black and white, simple solution. We know how much self reflection it takes to be truly open to the idea that our particular brand of recovery is not necessarily the “right” one — that there is no right way to find and maintain personal recovery.
Our groups will challenge you to step outside whatever box you’ve been wrapped, and if you decide they are not the appropriate place for you in your process right now, we will hold the door open for you in case you ever change your mind. You will not be judged.
There will be threads about active use, medication assistance, and moderation in this group, and some may feel triggered. You will always be encouraged to speak up these things in a way that respects us all. It is 100% possible to voice discomfort in a way that invites us all into conversation about boundaries and the importance of acknowledging and protecting our own edges.
If ever you wish to reach out to admin to discuss any of this, we really hope you will.
We are SO happy you found us, and I hope – after reading and processing all of this – you’ll join us and rejoice in the rare opportunities this group has to offer you.

SUPPORT FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS

What Can I Do?

Video gaming is a common pastime. To many people, it is surprising that it can become a serious addiction, that is, an activity that is engaged in compulsively, without control or concern for consequences.

Video gaming addiction is a very serious problem that is harmful to everyone it touches. Since everyone involved suffers from it, everyone involved needs some help. Here are some important things to know.

First, no one is responsible for someone else’s compulsive gaming. As the Al-Anon slogan goes, “I didn’t cause it, I can’t control it, and I can’t cure it.”

You didn’t cause it.

Some people partly blame themselves for the dysfunctional behavior of their family members, particularly with addicts who are very quick to shift responsibility off themselves and blame others. Perhaps you played games with your loved one, purchased games, or encouraged it, thinking it was a harmless leisure activity. Maybe you’ve been involved in some conflict and wonder if that has driven him or her to hide away in gaming. But no one is responsible for another person’s behavior or mental disorders.

You can’t control it.

You may have already tried to talk to your friend or family member. Perhaps you have bargained with them, or given ultimatums. You have tried to help them see what damage they are doing to themselves and others. And none of it has worked. This is baffling to you. Why don’t they seem to understand or care? Why can’t they see what is obvious to you? This is actually a symptom of the disease of addiction, one that destines efforts for control to failure.

You can’t cure it.

We all would like to believe that we have the ability to help those we love. We often think that if we can just get the right information, figure out the right thing to say or do, perhaps change something about ourselves, we can fix the problem. People should be able to solve their own problems. Why can’t we do that with this one? There is a simple reason. There is no cure for addiction. It requires treatment. The recovery process is long and difficult. And there is only one person who can start that process, the one who is gaming compulsively. There are things you can do. Here are some suggestions that you may want to consider, that other family members and friends have found helpful.

Get information.

The literature of recovery fellowships for family and friends of addicts (such as Al-Anon) has much helpful guidance, some of which is available online as well. There are people who have been in situations very similar to yours, who have learned much from them, and who are willing to share the lessons learned, their experience, strength and hope. We hope you avail yourself of such resources.

Detach with love.

Putting energy into arguing with someone who is playing compulsively will not help either of you. Your loved one has a serious problem that you are powerless to control or cure, and that they will not get help until they want it. As much as you love someone, you cannot force this process on another person.

Stop enabling.

Paradoxically, at the same time people are arguing with, bargaining with or shaming a compulsive gamer, they are often (perhaps without realizing it) supporting the addiction in many ways. Anything that shields an addict from the consequences of his or her behavior is enabling, and can include such basic things as providing food, shelter, money, companionship, housekeeping, and covering for employment and legal difficulties. Helping a compulsive gamer keep up an appearance of normalcy is helping him or her continue in the destructive behavior. While you cannot change him or her, you can make changes for yourself. You can shift your energy away from enabling behaviors and toward meeting your own needs.

Take care of yourself.

Whether or not your loved one ever stops gaming, you deserve to have a healthy and happy life. Once you have accepted that you are powerless over their gaming behavior, you can begin to focus on what you can do for yourself, to accomplish your own goals. With the help of others who have been where you are, you can learn to set healthy boundaries and stick to them.

Things To Do Instead of Gaming

One of the things we were trying to do with our gaming was meet some basic needs. If we do not meet those needs in normal healthy ways, we will suffer much stronger urges to game again. Some basic needs to cover are social needs, self expression, creativity, a sense of challenge and accomplishment, stress relief, a sense of purpose and meaning, and a sense of safety through control and predictability.

Here are some ideas for activities that will help meet these needs, reduce cravings, help with recovery from addiction, and fill some of the hours freed from compulsive gaming.

Please don’t let the length of this list overwhelm you. The idea is not to start ten new things and try to change everything all at once. We seek small bits of progress, not perfection. A good place to start is to put first things first. What need is currently most important? What’s right in front of me? What opportunity has come my way recently? If we take steps of small improvement with one or two areas each day, we are moving in the right direction.

 

Stress Relief

  • Talking with a sponsor or recovery buddy, CGAA meetings, or step work
  • Getting outside for fresh air and sunlight by taking a walk or doing some outdoor work
  • Meditation, coloring, craft work, journaling, or reading
 

Sense of safety through freedom, control, and predictability

  • Goal setting
  • Counseling or psychotherapy
  • Home organization, renovation, or spring cleaning
 

Sense of purpose, meaning, and self-respect

  • Supporting and growing the larger CGAA fellowship through service work like helping run a meeting, starting a local meeting, doing outreach to professionals, or attending CGAA business meetings
  • Attending a spiritual group like meditation, yoga, spiritual retreat, or religious gathering
  • Doing volunteer work like teaching, helping others, animal care, or building community places
  • Caring for a pet, house plants, or garden
 

Social needs

  • Attending CGAA meetings, connecting outside of meetings, reaching out to newcomers, or calling someone
  • Joining a hobby group like theater, a hiking group, art workshop, book club, public speaking, board games or card game group
  • Hosting a fun event like board games night or karaoke
  • Playing team sports, taking up martial arts, or playing one-on-one sports
  • Going to fun events like concerts, dances, or events on meetup.com
  • Calling up, video conferencing, or visiting with friends, family, neighbors, or other communities
 

Self expression and creativity

  • Journaling, opening up to a CGAA sponsor, or sharing openly in a meeting
  • Art work like drawing, photography, sculpting, or creative writing
  • Performance art like theater, singing, playing music, or writing music
 

Sense of challenge and accomplishment

  • Working the steps with a sponsor
  • Crafts like woodworking, origami, knitting
  • Outdoor activities like gardening, geocaching, bird watching, star gazing, tracking, plant identification, survival skills, or boating
  • Learning something like a foreign language, dancing, magic tricks, mechanical repair, cooking, a musical instrument, or computer programming
  • Career goals like getting a new job, starting a business, enrolling in school, or taking classes
 

Reconnection to one’s body and whole self

  • Meditating on breath, sounds, or bodily sensations
  • Exercise like walking, hiking, swimming, cycling, yoga, jogging, going to a gym, or playing a sport

If you are in your first week or two off of games, it’s likely that few of these ideas will appeal to you. That’s normal. Until our minds and bodies have some time to heal, we have low interest, energy, and motivation. This list will probably not give you something that you can plug in place of video games and immediately throw yourself into with the same zeal. This list is meant to help us explore new ways of spending our time, meeting our needs, and connecting with people. Find a few that hold some appeal and try taking some small steps in their direction. If you can’t seem to think of anything fun to do except game, you can come back to this list, find the most appealing thing, and just take a couple of little steps in its direction.

Consider setting reminders for yourself or keeping a schedule of your time and new activities. It is important to appreciate the small victories of exercising willpower, regaining motivation, and socializing. It helps to discuss our progress and the challenges we experience with a CGAA sponsor, recovery buddy, personal counselor, or therapist.

Rediscovering What is Fun

It is normal to think that nothing but gaming sounds fun. For most of us, our years of compulsive gaming warped and narrowed our idea of fun. As small children, it meant almost anything new or interesting or social or even mildly rewarding. Years of pulling the dopamine lever with video games changed our concept of fun to require instant gratification, frequent rewards, clear and constant progress, excitement, intense visuals, control, and/or predictability.

Part of recovery is letting our concept of fun expand back outward to a wide world of possible new challenges and experiences, many of which are calm and subtle compared to video games. It takes time to overcome withdrawals and heal from the damage, but the change does happen if we abstain from all gaming long term and focus on new pursuits and improving our lives. This list has many activities that do not meet the old, narrow, warped idea of “fun,” but those of us who persist at exploring them do find many to be gratifying and enjoyable.

Take, for example, a hike up a mountain. To a group of hikers excited to venture into the wilderness with friends and see wildlife and panoramic views from on high, all while getting a great workout, it’s a ton of fun. To someone who is uninterested in hiking, out of shape, and focused on every little unpleasant aspect of it, it’s a torturous death march. It is exactly the same hike in either case. The difference is in the attitude and conditioning.

The same is true with every item of these lists. Whether or not an activity sounds fun or torturous depends entirely upon attitude and conditioning. Every one of them has the potential to be gratifying and enjoyable if we adopt a positive attitude, try to have fun, and persist at it, especially when we involve friends and like-minded people.

About the Inspire Community Platform

Create A personal Journal

Your journal belongs to you; you may choose to have your journal entries show up in some, all, or none of your communities. Journal entries are generally longer and can be on any topic.

Join Community Discussions

Discussions belong to the community and are generally shorter than journal entries and are meant to encourage conversations between members. For example, if you wanted to ask for other members’ experiences with a particular treatment, you would post a discussion in the appropriate community. If you wanted to talk about your day, something more personal or off-topic, you would post a journal entry.

Create and Manage A Friends List

Friends are other members whom you may grow to trust and want to share more information with, or with whom you want to exchange private messages. You will be able to post journal entries that only your “friends” can read, and you will be able to send messages to your friends through our site without giving out your email address.

Use Inspire A.I. for quick answers

Inspire AI is a new feature on inspire that uses artificial intelligence to provide quick responses to member questions. The responses are automatically generated. The tool leverages a large language model (LLM), similar to what is used for popular tools such as ChatGPT. When you post on Inspire, you can choose whether you want to receive a response from InspireAI in addition to receiving replies from Inspire members. InspireAI is currently available in select cancer communities.

NJARISG – No Judgement Addiction & Recovery Information and Support Group

Facebook Group 24/7

The intentions and basis of this group are/is to be a safe, supportive, informative, judgment free (and FUN!) place to talk about addiction and recovery, and the multiple forms of treatment that are available. And to support, encourage, and educate one another. If you’re a person in treatment/recovery, are supporting someone else who is in active addiction or going through the treatment/recovery process, or you just want to learn more about addiction, recovery, and/or the various treatment options, then you’ve come to the right place! We’re here for you! This group was created, and is managed by a Certified Recovery Coach, who is also in recovery. I’ve tried and traveled various paths to get where I am today in my recovery, including: total abstinence, NA/AA, 12 step programs, Medication assisted treatment, (suboxone AND Methadone), Smart recovery, individual and group therapy, Celebrate Recovery/faith based programs, etc. The philosophy of this group is that no ONE way is “the right way,” when it comes to treatment, and recovery from addiction. And that what works for one person, doesn’t necessarily work for the whole.

OHA – Oregon Health Authority – Measure 110 Pays for Emergency Lodging While People Wait for Residental Substance use Treatment
Jun 14 all-day

 

 

 

 

When someone struggling with drug use reaches out for help, there’s a chance they’ll never get that help if they do not have housing. Often there are waiting lists for residential treatment services, and it is important to offer help with housing at the moment treatment is desired.

Organizations such as OnTrack Rogue Valley are using Measure 110 funding to fill critical gaps in the substance use treatment and recovery system, such as providing emergency lodging for people waiting for residential treatment beds.

Even though you may be in a safe environment, the feeling of being lost and afraid can still play a significant role in your recovery for several reasons:
1. **Emotional Triggers:** Emotions like feeling lost and afraid can act as triggers for past experiences, traumas, or struggles that may have contributed to your addiction. Addressing these triggers and learning healthy coping mechanisms is crucial for sustained recovery.
2. **Self-Awareness:** Emotions like fear and uncertainty can lead to increased self-awareness. They prompt you to reflect on your thoughts, behaviors, and past choices, which is essential for understanding the underlying causes of your addiction.
3. **Motivation to Change:** Negative emotions can serve as powerful motivators for change. They drive you to seek improvement, growth, and a better quality of life. The discomfort of feeling lost and afraid can push you to make positive changes in your life.
4. **Seeking Support:** Experiencing these emotions can lead you to reach out for help and support from therapists, counselors, support groups, or mentors. It’s a sign of your commitment to healing and making positive changes.
5. **Building Resilience:** Overcoming feelings of being lost and afraid can contribute to building resilience. As you learn to navigate and manage these emotions, you strengthen your ability to handle challenges and setbacks in your recovery journey.
6. **Transforming Negative into Positive:** Utilizing these emotions as a driving force for change can turn a negative experience into a positive catalyst for growth. It empowers you to channel your energy into constructive actions.
7. **Embracing Change:** The discomfort of feeling lost and afraid can help you develop a mindset that is more open to change. Embracing change is essential in recovery, as it involves breaking old patterns and adopting healthier habits.
While being in a safe environment is essential, addressing and processing the emotions you experience is a crucial aspect of comprehensive recovery. Remember that seeking professional guidance, building a support network, and developing coping strategies can help you effectively manage these emotions and continue on your path to healing and growth.

What is Families Anonymous?

Families Anonymous celebrated our 50th Anniversary in 2021. We were formed in 1971 by a group of concerned parents in California who were seeking ways of dealing with the problem of substance abuse and addiction in their children. Our members include parents, grandparents, siblings, spouses, significant others, other family members and friends of those with a current, suspected or former drug problem. We have been one of the best kept secrets in the recovery community, even though we have groups throughout the world.

Families Anonymous is a 12 Step fellowship for the families and friends who have known a feeling of desperation concerning the destructive behavior of someone very near to them, whether caused by drugs, alcohol, or related behavioral problems. When you come into our rooms you are no longer alone, but among friends who have experienced similar problems. Any concerned person is encouraged to attend our meetings, even if there is only a suspicion of a problem.

Your identity is protected in our meetings. We know each other by our first names only. Anonymity of our members is paramount to the success of our program. Not only is anonymity an underlying principle of the program, but it is so important that it is part of our name.

You have nothing to lose but your pain and anger. Read on if you are ready to find the peace and serenity that our members have found through the working of the FA program.

What is Al-Anon & Alateen

Al-Anon is …

a worldwide organization that offers a program of recovery for the families and friends of alcoholics, whether the alcoholic seeks help or even recognizes the existence of a drinking problem. Members give and receive comfort and understanding through a mutual exchange of experiences, strength, and hope.  Sharing of similar problems binds individuals and groups together in a bond that is protected by a policy of anonymity.

Al-Anon is not…

a religious organization or a counseling agency. It is not a treatment center nor is it allied with any other organization offering such services. Al-Anon Family Groups, which includes Alateen for teenage members, neither express opinions on outside issues nor endorse outside enterprises. No dues or fees are required. Membership is voluntary, requiring only that one’s own life has been adversely affected by someone else’s drinking problem.

Whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not…

Al-Anon offers hope and recovery to people affected by the alcoholism of a loved one or friend. Help is here for the asking.

Membership is voluntary, requiring only that one’s own life has been adversely affected by someone else’s drinking problem.

Whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not…

Al-Anon offers hope and recovery to people affected by the alcoholism of a loved one or friend. Help is here for the asking.

To Attend A Meeting In a Chat Room

When you first log on you will be in The Lounge which is not a meeting room, but open chat fellowship available 24/7 to members of all 12-step groups.

To go to the meeting rooms from The Lounge, click on the 3-dot menu icon at the top left of the chat screen, then click on the meeting room you wish to enter. If you don’t see the 3 dots, click the ESC key or swipe from the left if you are on a mobile device.

Tips for Chat Meetings

There is no real protocol for “informal” chat gatherings in our open chat rooms, but in our meeting rooms, we try to keep it as much of a face-to-face meeting as possible. Just as in a face-to-face meeting, we do not interrupt the person who is “speaking” or crosstalk after they are done.

Also, as in a face-to-face meeting, someone serves as the “chairperson” who opens the meetings, picks a topic and helps keep the meeting focused on the topic discussion as members take turn sharing on the topic.

Some of our meetings have a “greeter” who sends a private message to any late-comers to the meeting to welcome them and tell them the topics of discussion. If the late-comer is new to online meetings, the greeter may also explain briefly how meetings work (see below).

NOTE: To send someone a private message during the meeting, click on their name in the members’ list to the right of the chat window. To receive a private message, click on the name of the person who sent it.

If you wish to share, type an exclamation point like this: !. It’s like raising your hand.

The chair of the meeting will then call on the next person to share. In our chat rooms, it is best to type short lines followed by “. . .” which indicates that you are not finished. Like this:

One of the best tools I have found …
When I find myself under stress …
Is the Serenity Prayer … [done]

The [done] at the ends shows that you are finished, and the chairperson then will call on the next person to share.

That’s it. Those simple tools can keep things orderly even in a full chat room.

For instructions on how to log on to the chat rooms, please see this page.
