SOBRIETY always means abstinence in LifeRing.
The motto is “we do not drink or use, no matter what.”
We recognize that people will have relapses, and we welcome them, to help get them back on the road to recovery.
SECULARITY LifeRing Recovery welcomes people of all faiths and none. You get to keep whatever religious beliefs you have, and you are under no pressure to acquire any that you do not have. LifeRing supports recovery methods that rely on human efforts rather than on divine intervention.
SELF-HELP in LifeRing means that the key to recovery is the individual’s own motivation and effort. LifeRing is a place where individuals build their own Personal Recovery Program
