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.
By visiting www.OxfordHouse.org you will find a complete explanation of this remarkable organization.
Current weekly expense per member is $100.00
The men’s house is located in Saint Leonard within walking distance of Fastop.
The women’s house is located in Sunderland across the street from the DC Commuter parking lot.
Each house has up to 7 beds.
Each house strongly promotes 12-step meeting attendance.
All monies collected go into the house bank account.
Members can stay any length of time as long they stay current with their expense share, are not disruptive, and stay clean.
Relapse means immediate expulsion.
