7th Tradition

Recovery Source is a “passion project,” created from a drive to enable struggling groups to reach those who still suffer. This project is fully self-supported by voluntary contributions from project members who desire to share such expenses.

Recovery Source will remain completely free for all 12-Step programs that find the service useful; no outside donations are accepted. Developers who join this project are only permitted to contribute after one year of membership.
