Welcome to the Samson Society website!

If you are a first-time visitor, you will need to attend a virtual Newcomer Meeting or a local meeting before you can become a member of this site.  To attend a virtual Newcomer Meeting, click “SEND ME AN INVITE”  on one of the listings below, and we’ll send you a link.  You can attend the meeting using your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone.  If you decide to join the Samson Society after attending the meeting, we’ll make you a member of the site.  Membership will unlock all the tools on the site, including the worldwide Meeting Search, and will allow you to activate the Samson Society app.

With the Samson Society app, you can connect with anyone you’ve met in a meeting.  You can initiate or terminate a Silas relationship, track check-ins with your Silas, and check on your brothers.  With the approval of your group admin, you can even sign in from time to time as an Available Pirate Monk [APM] and take phone calls from strangers who need a listening ear.  Service to others is a great way to take your recovery to the next level.  

To find the app, search for Samson Society in the Apple App Store or Android Play Store.

If you are already a member of a local Samson Society group, make sure your meeting is listed on this new site. If it isn’t listed, go to the “Sign Up / Register a Group” tab at the bottom of this page and click “Create a Group.”  Registering your group will make it possible for men in search of brotherhood to find you.
