A Public Social Partnership was signed between the OASI Foundation, the Ministry for the Family and the Foundation for Social Welfare Services (FSWS) which sealed the commitment towards ensuring professional services to those persons suffering from addiction.
This was announced by the OASI Foundation, which also explained that the Public Social Partnership (PSP) ensures also the commitment towards the provision of Prevention Programs and Social Awareness, professional Therapeutic Services in the Community and Residential Therapy and Rehabilitation.
The PSP of €1.6 million will guarantee a service provision for the next 3 years. “Together we can make a difference in the lives of those who are suffering from addiction” – said OASI.
The Foundation also announced that it is happy to welcome new residents who are to start the OASI Residential Therapy & Rehab program, COVID-19 free. In fact, a group of five persons have gone through a quarantine process to be screened and secured they are free of the Coronavirus. This process was necessary to keep the current residents safe, thus ensuring the continuation of therapy and avoiding a lockdown situation, said the Foundation.
OASI Foundation said that all this was possible with the help of FSWS, especially the Gozo branch, as the needs that people suffering from addiction are facing, even more so, due to the COVID-19 pandemic were being understood.
