Criteria for membership
Recovery Norway is registered as a formal organization in Norway. People from outside of Norway can become members, but in some formal instances in Norway, they might not count as members formally. However, if you become a member, you still will be part of an international network of recovered patients and their next of kin.
In order to become a full member of Recovery Norway, one must fulfil one of the following two criteria:
- You have had and have recovered from CFS/ME or another so-called “medically unexplained” health problem, for example fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), tinnitus (auditory ringing noises). You have to have become well through a method or strategy that broadly involves changes in thinking or behavioural patterns or human interaction (not primarily changes in diet, supplements or pharmaceutical interventions. Neither can you have recovered from alternative therapies that are not compatible with a scientific worldview or model of the body).
- You are next of kin to such a person.
Thank you for wanting to become a member of Recovery!
