There is no "One Way"

There are many different ways.

I hope you find what works for you.

Women For Sobriety, Inc.
is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping women overcome alcoholism and other addictions. Our "New Life" program helps achieve sobriety and sustain ongoing recovery.

SMART RecoveryŽ:

  • Teaches self-reliance rather than reliance on a higher power
  • Views addiction as a complex maladaptive behavior rather than as a disease
  • Encourages you to recover and move on with your life
  • Does not use the labels "alcoholic" or "addict"
  • Does not have "sponsors"
  • Holds meetings which are actual discussions rather than a series of monologues
  • Advocates the appropriate use of prescribed medications and psychological treatments
  • Evolves as scientific knowledge evolves

This site is dedicated to presenting information and resources about the 16 Steps of Discovery and Empowerment developed by Charlotte Kasl, PHD. These Steps are featured in her book "Many Roads, One Journey - Moving Beyond the 12 Steps". 

"The (addicted) woman is attacked not only for her failure at motherhood, but for her abandonment of more general nurturing and caretaking functions that are at the core of the female role. 'Good' women are primarily concerned with the needs and welfare of others... and when women are no longer willing or able to serve.... - even for reasons beyond (their) control -- the response is usually not support or sympathy...."

LSR Life Ring
The  website of our splinter movement, Lifering Secular Recovery. 
Still has some good material, even though it likes to give the impression that all SOS 
groups now call themselves LSR and that there is some sort of endless litigation 
going on.  It's possible get misinformation about SOS on this web site.

This website and news- letter is dedicated to those of us who are affected by alcoholism and or drug addiction. 

The Definitive Guide to Personal Growth, Self Improvement and Self-Help

They rarely do it alone. If help is what you seek, we hope you'll find it here.

Recovery Net

It is the philosophy of this author that any and all recovery programs that help you to maintain abstinence from alcohol and other substances of abuse are legitimate.  In fact, modern research (e.g. Project MATCH ) has found that no form of addiction treatment is superior to any other.  In this spirit, Recovery Net intends to take an eclectic approach to the treatment of addictions.  For this, it coins the name ECLECTIC RECOVERY (ER).  Good luck in your quest to enjoy the benefits, freedoms, and comforts of a life in recovery.  R2  (anonymous author of Recovery Net).
