Description:

Bahamian Oasis is an Addiction Interruption Center. We “cure” both physical withdrawal symptoms and mental cravings, quickly. We do not cure addictive personalities and bad habits. That requires post treatment counseling and guidance. What we do is immediately remove withdrawal symptoms AND cravings from the equation of recovery.

Facts and stats

  • The Bahamas is not a significant drug producing country but remains a transit point for illegal drugs bound for the United States and other international markets.
  • In 2012, the Bahamian government released its update to the 2004-09 National Anti-Drug Strategy.
  • The new 2012-16 strategy lays out government plans for reducing drug demand and supply; strengthening anti-drug institutions; building international cooperation; and resourcing anti-drug efforts. Written at the end of the previous Free National Movement government’s tenure, the implementation of the strategy will fall to the new Progressive Liberal Party’s (PLP) government elected in May.
  • The Bahamas does not have a recent estimate of the prevalence, or age of first use of drugs, nor of the percentage of youths that perceive drug use as being harmful to their health and well-being. The last survey was carried out in 2001.
  • In 2004, 1,418 persons were formally charged with illicit drug trafficking or possession; in 2005, 1,401 persons were charged; and in 2006, 1,302 persons. No information is available on the number of persons convicted for this crime.
