Scientific Recovery is an evidence-based outpatient alcoholism treatment program for high-profile women seeking private, state-of-the-art care for problem drinking. Scientific Recovery utilizes safe, effective, research verified anti-craving medications together with personalized relapse prevention therapy. Our focus is on professional women who have recognized that alcohol is a problem they no longer want in their lives and who are ready to take action for recovery. Our goal is to assist women not only to eliminate their alcohol dependence, but also to be happy that they did.

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

Recovery in LifeRing promotes freedom from alcohol and other addictive drugs with peer support and feedback in a secular setting where you can structure your own program for recovery.

SOS (Secular Organizations for Sobriety)  
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." SOS respects recovery in any form regardless of the path by which it is achieved. It is not opposed to or in competition with any other recovery programs.  SOS supports healthy skepticism and encourages the use of the scientific method to understand alcoholism.

Alcoholics Anonymous  
Alcoholics Anonymous® is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
