Oxford House

Oxford House is a concept in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. In its simplest form, an Oxford House describes a democratically run, self-supporting and drug free home.
The number of members in a House may range from six to fifteen; there are houses for men, houses for women, and houses which accept women with children.
Each House represents a remarkably effective and low cost method of preventing relapse.
This was the purpose of the first Oxford House established in 1975, and this purpose is served, day by day, house after house, in each of over 1,600 houses in the United States today.
