Oasis invites you to be part of a movement that helps individuals who have made the decision to be free of drug and alcohol addiction and integrate themselves back into society by providing programs and services designed to help them to stabilize their recovery, overcome personal barriers, educate themselves and join the workforce by finding viable employment.
At first Oasis was a safe haven, where people who had troubles in the past – drugs, alcohol, unemployment, homelessness – could go and stay out of trouble. People could relax there, have a cup of coffee, talk to other people like them who knew what they were going through – they’d been there. And now? Twenty-three years later, the OASIS Addiction Recovery Society still provides post-detox individuals, treatment centre graduates and Twelve Step Fellowship members support – a ‘safe haven’ and sane social interactivity. And now there’s more – much more. The founders realized that meaningful work was a key element in rebuilding individual pride, the human spirit and the will to succeed – to find a better life. We now serves about 700 individuals per year. We place approximatley 170 people a year into meaningful full or part-time employment and many members (about 500 per year) participate in casual labour placements that often lead to full time jobs.
