Recovery Chatroom

Welcome to the Recovery International Chatroom! ** This chat room is open 24 hours a day. A schedule of structured meetings and moderated chats is at the bottom of this page. The purpose of the chatroom is to provide peer support using the principles of Abraham Low’s self help system.

The next meeting will be held:

Start Chatting

Chat IconTo launch the chat, please click (single click) the bottom right screen chat icon to open the chat room login screen.  You can ask your computer to save your userid and password so that you don’t have to type it every time.

To modify your profile:  (password, email address, avatar – little icon next to your name) and status (online or away), click on the “gear” icon at the top left of the right hand screen where your username appears.


To make changes to your view of the chat window: click on the “gear” icon to the left of the words “Chat Room”.  You can:

  • Change the color of your text
  • Make the text size bigger or smaller
  • Turn on or off the “beep” that notifies you of new messages in the chat room (called “audible alerts”).
  • View a large selection of emojis
  • Exit the chat room.

New to RI?

 Register: You need to register to participate in the chat rooms.  Please create a username and a password and type in your email address. If you ever forget your password, you can click on “lost password.”  If you have participated in RI chats before, you can use your same username – you just need to create a new password (because this is a different web server).

Check the links on the right: these will help you with the background information on Recovery International, sample spots, and a sample “Example” in four parts.

If you have any problems or questions, please feel free to email the chat leaders at: meetingleaders@RIselfhelp.com

Please note: this chat software works on desktops and tablets.  Unfortunately it does not yet work on iphones or androids.

** The official Recovery International web site’s chatroom is temporarily down and so this chat room will be used until the new web site has launched a new software.
