PARKSVILLE — The Society of Organized Services (SOS) reaches out to support women who are on a road to addiction recovery by offering a free,16-step group program.
SOS recognizes the individuality of each woman’s journey to recovery, what brought her to substance abuse, what threatens to return her there, and what keeps her from returning.
The powerful force of addiction can be overcome by the collective will of a group sharing a common goal — sobriety. Most battles are made easier with support, bonding, speaking from the heart, sharing, and forgiving. Seeking a true purpose can lead to a fulfillment, which addiction fails to bring. Self-discovery leads to self-empowerment.
The one pre-requisite to the Women’s 16-Step, Self-Help Group is a desire to lead a sobriety-centred life. There is no judgment, everyone is worthy of enjoying a fulfilled life.
Program goes from Sept. 5 to Dec. 19, every Wednesday from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at the SOS Child, Youth and Family Centre, 245 West Hirst Ave, Parksville.
Call 250-248-2093 ext.225 to register.
