What is an Oxford House
Oxford Houses are self-run, self-support recovery houses for addiction. The original house was started in the late 70’s and there are now over 1,800 world wide. All decisions pertaining to an individual house are democratically made by the members of that house and because of that each house has a different personality. In order to maintain their charter, each house must follow three rules. Be democratically run, expel anyone for using, and each member must pay their share of the house expenses.
