BEFORE THERE WAS ZOOM… –
Sept. 30, 2022 – 14 years ago, Ken Pomerance and Ron Tannebaum came up with a revolutionary idea that was to change the face of recovery for people around the world. What started as a great idea, flourished into a globally recognized recovery tool and lifesaving platform for millions of people.
With Kens imaginative nature and Ron’s can do attitude the pair immediately set about creating what we now know as InTheRooms.com or ITR to it’s devoted users. With the popularity of social media platforms skyrocketing, the pair felt that creating an inclusive and safe space for the recovery community was totally doable. Having enjoyed decades of recovery themselves, through a 12 step process, they both understood the importance of anonymity for the potential users of this new platform. They endeavoured to keep their users safe in all aspects, and making sure users personal information was well sealed behind a firewall was also priority. The list of what Ron and Ken wanted grew and included a wish to have live, online meetings to cater for all recovery fellowships and paths.
