The Oasis Addiction Recovery Society is a movement to help recovering alcoholics and drug-addicts to become a healthy part of society.
About OASIS ADDICTION RECOVERY SOCIETY
In 1992, the Oasis Movement was formed by a group of recovering individuals (led by Takis Liris), as a place for people in recovery to find support in the 12-step community, and socialize in a safe and supportive environment. Many in recovery wanted a place to congregate but did not want to go back to the “bar scene”, hence the creation of the Metro Oasis Club.
Seventeen years later, Oasis Addiction Recovery Society welcomes over 700 recovering addicts per year. Females represent 40% of our membership and new Canadians have been a growing group in recent years. Oasis’ support model incorporates social integration, employment focused services, 12-step support and community involvement as a means to achieving economic independence, ongoing recovery and self-worth for its’ members.
This is made possible with financial support from government agencies, the clothing bank, partnerships with other organizations, program development, special projects and other fund raising activities.
