Secular Organizations for Sobriety

May 18, 2010

This is fantastic.  The Secular Organizations for Sobriety is an organization that sponsors a recovery plan for drug addicts and alcoholics that is completely absent of religious language.

According to the organization’s website, “SOS is an alternative recovery method for those alcoholics or drug addicts who are uncomfortable with the spiritual content of widely available 12-Step programs. SOS takes a reasonable, secular approach to recovery and maintains that sobriety is a separate issue from religion or spirituality. SOS credits the individual for achieving and maintaining his or her own sobriety, without reliance on any “Higher Power.” 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.

SOS supports healthy skepticism and encourages the use of the scientific method to understand alcoholism.”

You can go here to find a meeting near you in the United States, or you can go to this page to find a meeting in another country.

SOS is another worthwhile project sponsored by the Center for Inquiry.
