Registration to this forum is free! We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed below. If you agree to the terms, please check the 'I agree' checkbox and press the 'Complete Registration' button below.

TERMS OF SERVICE

Although the administrators and moderators of TheEndofMyAddiction.org (EOMA.ORG) will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this site, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners or administrators of EOMA.ORG will be held responsible for the content of any message. We take no responsibility for, we do not expressly or implicitly endorse, nor do we assume any liability for any user content submitted

The owners, administrators and moderators of EOMA.ORG reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any content item for any reason.

You retain the rights to your copyrighted content or information that you submit to EOMA.org ("user content") except as described below.

By submitting user content to EOMA.ORG, you grant us a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, unrestricted, worldwide license to reproduce, prepare derivative works, distribute copies, perform, or publicly display your user content in any medium and for any purpose, including commercial purposes, and to authorize others to do so. Not that we would do that but we have to say it and you have to agree to it.

You agree to hold EOMA.ORG, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, and third party service providers (should we ever have any of those) harmless from and defend them against any claims, costs, damages, losses, expenses, and any other liabilities, including attorneys’ fees and costs, arising out of or related to your access to or use of EOMA.ORG, your violation of this user agreement, and/or your violation of the rights of any third party or person.

The information on this website does not constitute or substitute for medical advice. You should speak with a licensed medical professional before starting any course of medication. If you are having difficulty finding a physician, please see our physician’s directory to see if there is one near you.

FORUM RULES OF ENGAGEMENT

There are many paths to the end of addiction. This community thrives because of a lively exchange of differing experiences, perspectives and opinions. For this to continue to happen, tolerance for one another is imperative. To foster that atmosphere please keep in mind not just the letter of the guidelines, but the spirit in which they were written.

There are really only two rules:

Rule 1: We generally provide a lot of leeway in what content is acceptable, however… It is at the discretion of the moderators and administrators to determine where the line will be drawn.

Rule 2: Only one username is permitted per member. If you have issues signing into your account, contact the administrator. Do not create another account. It will be deleted.

Guidelines for content that will be removed:

·      Anything illegal, pornographic or violent

·      Content that threatens, embarrasses, harasses or bullies

·      Revealing another member’s identity and/or private information (either advertent or inadvertent)

·      Trolling (posting with the intent to disrupt the forum or intentionally and/or repeatedly disturbing or upsetting another member)

·      Spamming (if you have something legitimate to sell or wish to share information about a for-profit venture, send a message to an administrator)

·      Links to outside sources, which in the view of the Moderation team are not relevant and flaming including identifying individuals

·      Flooding (repeated posts intended to keep members from having reasonable discourse)

·      Anything else the Moderation team consider is not in the best interest of the Forum and its members

Report posts that you believe warrant the attention of the moderators by using the “Report Post” button located at the top of every post. Someone will follow up within 24 hours.

Levels of enforcement:

·       Removal of content

·       Asking you to knock it off (nicely)

·       Asking you to knock it off (less nicely)

·       Temporary suspension of account

·       Permanent suspension of account

·       Banning the username /IP address

If you feel a decision concerning a post you have written has been made arbitrarily or incorrectly, contact the administrator/moderator for clarification.

Be aware that your username and posts are open for all to see. If you want to change your username please refer to the relevant section.

This website and its content are intended for information purposes only and should not be taken as a substitute for qualified medical advice.
