Overview

Sure to be controversial, S.O.S. Sobriety lays bare the limitations of Alcoholics Anonymous while describing the proven methods of alcohol and drug abstention advocated by James Christopher, founder of Secular Organizations for Sobriety (or "Save Our Selves"), the world's largest non-12-step addiction recovery program.

After answering basic questions about the nature and purpose of S.O.S., the success of the "sobriety priority" approach is documented through two scientific studies. Included are moving, in-depth individual recovery stories, interviews with addiction experts and legal professionals, as well as a critique of "controlled drinking" programs and the insistence by AA and the liquor industry that alcoholism is a problem of behavior rather than one rooted in physiology and genetics.

"His is a provocative and thoughtful humanist account; another peg in the coffin of the controlled drinking aficionados."
-Kenneth Blum, Ph.D., author of Alcohol and the Addictive Brain
