Impact

For the Oasis Society, the vision of integrated recovery speaks to the efforts needed to confront the dis-integration that has happened to families and cultural systems since the time of contact. In our understanding, integrated recovery means more than being free of substance abuse, it means there is a meaningful integration into community, family, and culture.

At the Oasis, we believe this is made possible through spiritual practices that open us up to the oasis of strength within that makes what previously seemed impossible become possible. When recovery is integrated, the healing that happens for the individual and extended family can be lasting and holistic – a healing of body, mind and spirit.
