Please Help SAVE SOS!
SOS is in financial crisis.
For over 23 years, the Council for Secular Humanism (CSH) has
financially supported Secular Organizations for Sobriety. Now, due
to other commitments, CSH will severely cut their
financial support for SOS. This is set to occur at the end of
March 2014; however, CSH has recently agreed to continue their
current level of financial support for SOS
SOS can raise $75,000
to March 31, 2014. We urge you to
donate online here or send your tax deductible
donation today to:
4773 Hollywood Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90027
(Credit card donors
may also call 323-666-4295 24 hours)
Secular Organizations for Sobriety has
helped countless thousands of addicted persons reclaim their lives
for over 28 years. We need your help
in order to effectively continue the implementation of the world’s
oldest and largest alternative to 12-Step religious support
Thank you so very much!
The Indiegogo campaign to save SOS is up!
Hurry - the campaign ends March
As many of you may know, we have been working on a documentary web series
for the past two years. This project has been and continues to be an
incredible experience for me! The show is called You Are Here TV
and is a retrospect on the rapidly growing secular community in Los
Angeles. Our new episode explores an incredible organization: SOS
(Secular Organizations for Sobriety) and its founder,
James Christopher. While in post-production with the episode, it
was brought to our attention that SOS will be
losing its funding in March of 2014. SOS has been around for over
35 years, boasts meetings all over the world, and has helped countless
numbers to get clean and sober. The organization provides a place for
alcoholics, addicts, compulsive overeaters and families and friends of
alcoholics to go if the spiritual elements of the 12-step model are
troublesome for them.
You Are Here TV will be launching an
Indiegogo campaign for SOS in
just a few months, but in the meantime, James Christopher and SOS really
need your help. Please watch our mini-doc on this amazing organization,
and if you like it, please "Like" it and share it. Help us get the word
out about SOS. We need your help!
Although the campaign is a few months away, you can still
donate to help
the SOS cause. Simply visit them on the web at
www.sossobriety.org. Or, if you
know of anyone who would be willing to help with website re-design and our
fundraising efforts, we would love and greatly appreciate your help!

November 1999, SOS launched a series of special events at the Center for Inquiry-L.A.
All SOS events are open to the general public and of course are clean and sober.
Light refreshments will be available for purchase.

What is SOS all about?
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."
