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 secular approach to recovery and maintains that sobriety is a separate issue from religion or spirituality. SOS respects recovery in any form regardless of the path by which it is achieved, supports healthy skepticism, and encourages the use of the scientific method to understand alcoholism. SOS Behind Bars is set up to address the needs of those who are in jails or prisons.

In-person meetings in jails and prisons. Founded in 1985.
