The recovery Radio Network has long been a member of various recovery based Webrings. We highly recommend them as a great way to find like-minded people and resources. Try it and see if you don’t agree. Just click the “next” link on the Webring search box above to be taken to the Webring where you can browse for other recovery oriented sites.
On a related issue, there are a couple of Social Networking sites that I belong to that are recovery based as well. They have the usual “Facebook” or “Myspace” feel and functionality to them, and serve the same purpose for people in recovery looking for other people to connect with. The diseases of Addiction and Alcoholism, do their best to keep the victims isolated from humanity, and these social networking sites, serve as a valuable way for us to create new connections to help in overcoming our isolation. Even though these sites are relatively new and still suffering the pains associated with growth here are links to the two I have found to be helpful. The first one is InTheRooms and the other is Sanewire. Try them out and see if social networking is for you. You might be pleasantly surprised to discover new friends and activities online that will help your feelings of isolation dissipate. Wouldn’t THAT be GOOD! I am a member of both these sites with the moniker of “Stationmanager” so, look me up once you get online, I’m always looking for new friends!
Finally, we have started podcasting here at Recovery Radio Network. Look under our Blogroll listings on the right side of this page and you will see a couple different links for RRN. The streaming media link takes you to our traditional website, where you will find all sorts of speakers and workshops available for “on demand” listening, using the mp3 player of your choice, or our built in Flash player.
The RRN Podcast link, will take you to our new site where, in addition to listening to audio using the built-in flash player, you may also download the various episodes and play them on your portable audio player. Since this site is new, the selection of audio files is currently limited but, we will be adding new files to the site regularly so, check back often.
In addition to downloading Podcast episodes, you may create written comments about the speakers, share the episodes with friends, or link directly to the audio files, all from within our Podcast page. You may also become a subscriber to the RRN podcast so that when we release new episodes you will automatically get them. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
These guys have good stuff to share with you so. you might want to give them a try. Plus, you can listen or download their stuff for later use. It is all in the industry standard mp3 format, so most audio players will handle it just fine.It is called the primary purpose website and here is a link to it. Primary Purpose
