New York, NY, April 7, 2010 -- Today MusiCares and In The Rooms, a free online global recovery community and social network, announces the MusiCares In The Rooms site, www.musicaresintherooms.com. This is a safe and secure place for people in the music industry to share their recovery and their experiences, strength and hope, as many musicians struggle with addiction or are in recovery. Established in 1989 by The Recording Academy, MusiCares provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need, focusing on human service issues that directly impact the health and welfare of the music community including issues of addiction. Together these two organizations are making a difference in music people’s recovery.
“In The Rooms is taking the concept of social networking to a much higher purpose, fostering community with confidentiality for people in recovery,” said Kristen Madsen, Senior Vice President of MusiCares. “Our partnership provides a significant addition to our existing menu of services for our clients.”
With over 75,000 members and over 200,000 years of recovery, In The Rooms is the number one web site for those seeking help for their addiction, in recovery and their family, friends and allies. The social network is actively used, with over 1.3 million messages, over 476,000 status updates and over 2.6 million comments. In The Rooms provides information and resources to serve as an invaluable “lifeline” for anyone seeking to better understand addiction, recovery and share their experiences, strength and hope.
“We are honored to provide a site for people involved in the music industry,” said Ron Tannebaum, co-founder of In The Rooms. “In The Rooms will help music people stay connected and provide a supportive environment for their ongoing recovery.”
Established in 1989 by The Recording Academy®, MusiCares provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need. MusiCares’ services and resources cover a wide range of financial, medical and personal emergencies, and each case is treated with integrity and confidentiality. MusiCares also focuses the resources and attention of the music industry on human service issues that directly impact the health and welfare of the music community. As a result of acquiring MAP in September 2004, MusiCares developed the MusiCares MAP Fund® as a pool of resources set aside specifically to address addiction recovery and sober living needs. Named for the Musicians’ Assistance Program, the MusiCares MAP Fund represents the joint goal of MAP and MusiCares to provide members of the music community access to addiction recovery treatment regardless of their financial circumstances.
