SERVICES

Winnipeg SOS

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, as SOS is concerned with achieving and maintaining sobriety (abstinence). SOS seeks only to promote sobriety amongst those who suffer from addictions. As a group, SOS has no opinion on outside matters and does not wish to become entangled in outside controversy. Although sobriety is an individual responsibility, life does not have to be faced alone. The support of other alcoholics and addicts is a vital adjunct to recovery. In SOS, members share experiences, insights, information, strength, and encouragement in friendly, honest, anonymous, and supportive group meetings. To avoid unnecessary entanglements, each SOS group is self-supporting through contributions from its members and refuses outside support. Sobriety is the number one priority in a recovering person’s life. As such, he or she must abstain from all drugs or alcohol. Honest, clear, and direct communication of feelings, thoughts, and knowledge aids in recovery and in choosing nondestructive, non-delusional, and rational approaches to living sober and rewarding lives. As knowledge of addiction might cause a person harm or embarrassment in the outside world, SOS guards the anonymity of its membership and the contents of its discussions from those not within the group. SOS encourages the scientific study of addiction in all its aspects. SOS does not limit its outlook to one area of knowledge or theory of addiction.

ABOUT

Secular Organizations for Sobriety was founded in 1985 by James Christopher, a sober alcoholic, himself since 1978 and author of the books SOS Sobriety and Unhooked: Staying Sober and Drug-Free. Secular Organizations for Sobriety or “SOS” as it’s fondly referred to by it’s members, has helped countless thousands of addicted persons reclaim their lives for over 28 years. Since it’s inception, Secular Organizations for Sobriety has welcomed anyone sincerely seeking sobriety from alcohol addiction, drug addiction and behavioural and/or process addictions. SOS is a highly effective alternative to the 12-step model, and provides yet another path to recovery from addiction. SOS welcomes the attendance of religious as well as nonreligious persons, and offers a support group and method in a secular setting. SOS credits the individual for achieving and maintaining his/her own sobriety. 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 program. Secular Organizations for Sobriety is a nonprofit network of autonomous, non-professional local groups dedicated solely to helping individuals achieve and maintain sobriety. There are group meetings in many cities throughout the world.
