You'll find OneRecovery here.
OneRecovery is an online community put together and populated by people in recovery. The system was started a few years ago by a California business professional looking for a better way to serve others as he fulfilled his own "steps." (We subscribe to the premise that success rates go up, and medical costs for a patient go down, when they have good tools to monitor their own well-being).
You can reach OneRecovery by clicking on this link or the logo above. That will bring you to an introductory page with a quick preview. Once you sign in, just complete a profile and become part of our family on the site and start building online support. There are a range of features and benefits to OneRecovery. It allows alumni to connect and remain in contact with others who are in recovery, to set goals for their personal recovery journey, attend on-line meetings, and see what sober events are scheduled in their area. They can read the personal stories of others who are in recovery, write a blog, and both provide support and receive it from others who are part of their personal recovery network.
Group chat rooms and other features make it easy for someone to reach out to share the feelings, events and circumstances of one's day. The site offers continuous interactive support: someone can tell his/her chosen friends, the alumni members' group, or the entire national membership how they're feeling at any particular time. Choosing from several dozen emoticons, a member can easily express various degrees of a good day or a difficult one, and in turn receive support, encouragement and in some cases, messages and phone calls that might save a life.
Through OneRecovery, we'll stay in touch with alumni and support them in the recovery process. Should someone relapse or be in need of additional support during difficult times, our staff will be able to respond quickly and provide assistance in a private, non-confrontational interaction. We'll also be able to celebrate milestones of an individual member, to encourage future success.
We encourage everyone (especially our alumni) to visit the OneRecovery site for a preview, sign in and make the most of this new tool for lasting recovery.
