Missouri's Oxford House program is a private, not-for-profit, effort to provide "good houses in good neighborhoods" for people recovering from alcoholism and/or other drug dependence.
In addition to safe, substance-free living, Oxford Houses also provide important psychological supports, such as fellowship and opportunities to enhance self-reliance and self-respect. It is a place where individuals can make behavioral changes necessary to ensure continued sobriety. Begun by a group of recovering persons in Silver Spring, Maryland , in 1975, the Oxford House concept has grown into a national movement. Each Oxford House is a separate, self-sustaining, resident-managed, independent entity, closely aligned with Alcoholics/Narcotics Anonymous. The Oxford House program has become an important adjunct to America's alcohol/drug abuse remedial effort.
