OASI Immediate Intervention deals with stress, inner-conflicts, deviating lifestyles, nutritional and leisure issues. Social engagement, being a process of continuous development, has always imposed pressures on people. There are moments wherein human efforts do not sustain the targets imposed on them by the fast development of a consumerist environment. Less people are well equipped with the necessary emotional and psychological skills to deal with the problems they face. Therefore this kind of intervention reaches out to the urgent needs of people in moments of personal crisis, before the individual turns to dangerous solutions, and helps youths with juvenile problems when they feel the need for guidance and orientation during the “stage of susceptibility”.
Immediate Intervention is an attempt by OASI Foundation to avert people in distress from reverting to alcohol or drugs as a means to ‘solve’ their problems. This service opens up a process of change and growth in the person. Through coaching and support therapy, it helps individuals to recover self-confidence and thus manage their ordinary, everyday life responsibilities without fear and with a more relaxed and matter of fact attitude.
