Secular Organizations for Sobriety / "Save OurSelves"

Save OurSelves-New York is a non-profit network of alternative recovery groups in New York State, which follow the guidelines and principles of SOS (Save OurSelves) International. Our groups are autonomous, non-professional local groups dedicated solely to helping individuals achieve and maintain sobriety. This site lists ongoing SOS meetings in & around New York State, as well links towards information pertaining to addictions (alcohol & other drugs), their associated problems, and approaching recovery from a rational, open-minded outlook.

All those who seek sobriety are welcome as members in any SOS group. There is no hidden agenda, as SOS seeks only to promote sobriety within a safe, secular setting. SOS encourages the scientific study of addiction in all its aspects. Religion or spirituality is maintained to be a private & personal matter left to each individual’s conscience. SOS does not limit its outlook to one area of knowledge or theory of alcoholism and addiction. SOS respects recovery in all forms, and is not in competition with any other program or group.

As a group, SOS-NY has no opinion on outside matters and does not wish to become entangled in outside controversies. This group does not discriminate on grounds of race, gender, sexual preference, religious or non-religious affiliation. This is an alternative to traditional twelve-step groups, but is often used in conjunction with other forms of recovery support.

Secular Organizations for Sobriety has helped countless thousands of addicted persons reclaim their lives for over 28 years. Your donations help us to effectively continue the implementation of the world’s oldest and largest alternative to spiritual 12-Step support groups.
