Welcome to the Oxford House St. George website

Oxford Houses are family houses that groups of recovering individuals rent to live together in an environment supportive of recovery from addiction. Each house is self run and self supported following a standardized system of democratic operation. Each group obtained a charter from Oxford House, Inc., the umbrella organization formed by the national network of individual Oxford Houses. An Oxford House charter has three basic requirements for the group:
  1. It must be democratically self run,
  2. It must be financially self supported, and
  3. It must expel any resident who returns to using alcohol or drugs.
The standardized system of operations has evolved from the 31 year history of Oxford House and permits replication of Oxford Houses throughout the country. all Oxford Houses are tied together to assure mutual support and quality control. Become involved. Make democracy work. Accept responsibility for Oxford House to work. Share the strength, experience and pride of your Oxford House with other Oxford Houses in the local, state and national movement. By helping others we help ourselves.
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) are 12 step programs that have helped millions of recovering addicts to change their behavior to adopt lifelong abstinence. Unfortunately, many recovering individuals need more support than AA and NA alone provide. Oxford houses provide the additional support and the time to learn new behavior. Over 80% of those who live in the Oxford house stay clean and sober. The Oxford house concept, which emphasizes that together we can democratically run a clean and sober house, is key to gaining the time and strength we all need to stay clean and sober forever. We can also stay in an Oxford house for as long as necessary to get comfortable in sobriety without relapse.
