"The directory makes recovery one step easier."
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 27, 2010
Today In The Rooms (http://www.intherooms.com), the number one global recovery community and social network for those in recovery from addiction or alcoholism and for family, friends and allies, announces the first ever global online 12 Step meeting directory. From now on, those looking for an Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Overeaters Anonymous, or Gamblers Anonymous meeting, in any area and location, can go to http://www.intherooms.com or http://meetings.intherooms.com to find meetings in their area or around the world. Using the latest in HTML5 geolocation technology, the directory will give you the most likely search results by simply just opening the page, both on your computer and mobile phone.
Popular smart phones with GPS capability (iPhone, Android) will be able to access the user’s current location and automatically present the closest 12 Step Fellowship meetings to where they are right now. Availability for Blackberry and other mobile platforms is currently in development.
Until now, finding a 12 step meeting online has been a cumbersome experience. The information is scattered across thousands of regional web sites, and it is often hit and miss. InTheRooms has aggregated this information and developed a platform to assist those currently in, and those seeking recovery from drug, alcohol, eating disorders and gambling addiction.
“The In The Rooms 12 Step meeting directory will make lives of those in recovery or seeking recovery so much easier,” said Ron Tannebaum, Co-Founder of In The Rooms. “Before this directory, someone in recovery would have to tediously look up meetings in their area by perusing different sites. Now all the information is in one place and easily accessed by location.”
For members of In The Rooms, members can now add meetings to their profile, as well as add, edit and update meeting information to the site with a click of a button, helping other members stay informed. With more than 90,000 members, In The Rooms is actively used, with more than 1.2 million messages, 440,000 status updates and 2.4 million comments. Founded on the principles of the 12 Steps, In The Rooms provides information and resources to serve as an invaluable "lifeline" for anyone seeking to better understand addiction and recovery and share experiences, strength and hope.
"The 12-step meeting directory is one of the most amazing things that has come to recovery today,” said Mal G., a member of In The Rooms. “Before the directory, I had to fumble through different web sites to find meetings in my area and now it is all available online in one place. The directory makes recovery one step easier.”
