SOS (Secular Organization for Sobriety)

While the 12 Step (AA model) is an authoritative approach for entrenched substance addiction, there are some compelling reasons why teens with addiction or substance use histories do not connect with it.  SOS offers the social construct of 12 Step but in a secular milieu. “All those who sincerely seek sobriety are welcome as members in any SOS group. SOS is not a spin-off of any religious or secular group. There is no hidden agenda. SOS is concerned with achieving and maintaining sobriety or abstinence. SOS seeks only to promote sobriety amongst those who suffer from addictions.”
