1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    [noparse]The Recovery & Addiction section of drugs-forum has been gaining more and more popularity. Many members have used DF as an important tool in their recovery process. The support network that the community offers to people dealing with addiction has been found to be very beneficial. The Recovery & Addiction section is open to our 160.000 members and 2.5 million monthly readers.

    The recovery and addiction section has been expanded with:[/noparse]
    • a dedicated recovery journal section.
    • recovery articles
    • support [noparse]chat[/noparse]
    • A tool to assess your [noparse]addiction[/noparse]
    • direct link to our index of 11.000 treatment centers
    [​IMG] You can view the recovery & [noparse]addiction[/noparse] section here: Recovery & Addiction Section

    We call on our readers and members to further enhance our recovery articles section by writing new articles. Your writings will be to the benefit of our 2.5 million monthly readers, so its a major good deed to submit an article that helps people dealing with [noparse]addiction[/noparse].

    [noparse]Our support chat is open around the clock and its possible to invite other members.
    As chat is resource intensive and costly, support chat is currently limited to donating members. This will change when our financial situation allows it. Drugs-Forum is entirely dependent upon donations and is in dire need of sponsors. Donations start at 3.50 and can be [/noparse]made here.

    We would like to invite people in recovery to open a Recovery Journal here to enjoy community support, feedback, peer to peer advice and tracking process.

    [noparse]We want to keep enhancing this important aspect of Drugs-Forum and will keep adding functionality and features for the benefit of helping members resolve their addiction issues. As always, we are open to any suggestions,[/noparse] which can be submitted here.

    Please share this announcement with others.

    I think this is a great idea for the future of this board. While drug use begins with a sense of experimentation, it progresses to addiction for far too many people. Having this outlet on the board makes sense. Drugs-Forum.com is a one stop shop for the drug experience. You can come to this board and learn how to reduce harm from use, get accurate information on drugs, and kick. In the process you will meet new people who may become lifelong friends. It is a huge accomplishment to man a ship of this magnitude.

    Much respect Alfa. :)

    I totally concur Alfa, I think the chat is underused at the moment and could be utilised for more one on one recovery chats and maybe recovery chat meetings sometime in the future. As I said in the past I'd be quite happy to help out with any of these future projects.

    Great idea. :thumbsup:

    Sparkles. :vibes:
