WHAT IS SOS ?
SOS takes a self-empowerment approach to recovery and maintains that overcoming abuse or dependency is a separate issue from all else.
SOS credit’s the individual for achieving and maintaining his or her own recovery. Everyone is unique !
SOS respects recovery in any form, regardless of the path by which it is achieved. It is not opposed to or in competition with any other recovery programs. Ultimately, we are all allies working toward a common goal.
SOS supports healthy skepticism and encourages the use of the scientific method to understand abuse or dependence on alcohol and other addictive substances.
SOS has no religious or spiritual content - that’s your business not ours.
SOS is a nonprofit network of autonomous, nonprofessional local groups dedicated solely to helping individuals permanently overcome abuse of or dependence on alcohol, drugs or other addictive substances.
