Oxford House is a concept in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. In its simplest form, an Oxford House describes a self-supporting and drug free home. 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 2000 houses in the United States today.
