The meetings for 12 step groups originally took place (and still do) in physical buildings like churches, hospitals, schools, mission houses or any place that freely allow such meetings. Over the years, with improving technology and especially with the advent of the internet, the meeting venues have expanded to also include online meetings or tele-meetings (meetings on a shared phone line). The online meetings may take place using different means of communications like text-only chat, voice or video (e.g., Skype).

Virtual Speaker Jam will be held on Saturday March 21st beginning at 7pm
Like in person meetings, online meetings are headed by a chairperson who works to keep the meeting running smoothly. A topic is introduced and others take turns sharing on the topic. At some meetings, the chairperson will also present the opening and closing statements by copy-pasting text files. Meetings last approximately one hour. Online meetings, unlike online chat, introduce a topic and allow only one person at a time to share (or type their comments). Using “voice chat” participants can actually hear each other share on the meeting topics. With the use of a microphone and speakers, participants can talk and listen to others in the room. Those who do not have microphones can share by typing their messages on the screen.
Platform to help anyone get sober and stay sober. Some join to get support, others to give it. Each free download, post, and connection create an opportunity to stay sober while helping others do the same. Download the SoberGrid App via Google Play, iTunes or the link above.
