Family Oasis is a family-based counseling program working with youth who have substance abuse problems. This program is unique because it brings family members into the counseling process. Family Oasis treats youth with risk factors for substance abuse, including behavioral and emotional problems, violence, early drug use, and family conflict. The program uses a specially designed approach called "Brief Strategic Family Therapy" (BSFT). Family Oasis is practical and short-term. It takes approximately three months but can be extended depending on a family's needs.

It is essential to bring family members into the treatment process because it helps youth to:

feel supported
reduce shame
improve self-esteem
reduce substance abuse
improve school performance
increase resilience
reduce juvenile offending
reduce rates of violence
improve family relationships

The Family Oasis program provides intake and assessment, culturally-sensitive counseling, family counseling, case management for youth and families, counseling provided at home, support groups, referrals, and follow-ups.

The primary assessment tools involve the Global Appraisal of Individual Needs (GAIN) family of instruments. GAIN provides a standardized approach to clinical screening, diagnosis, treatment planning and services.

Any Asian American / Pacific Islander family that have a youth (13 to 18 years old) with a substance abuse problem are eligible for this program.

Family Oasis is funded by the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment.
