Oxford House Utah Testimonials

aimee In 2010, I had lost everything and everyone I loved due to my drug addiction. I finally ended up in jail in 2011 and served 5 months. When I was released from jail I had no where to go and nobody to turn to for help. I wanted to stay sober but didn't know how. I moved into the Oxford House and was accepted with open arms. Thanks to the Oxford House I have a new family and a new understanding of how to live a clean and sober life. I now have 16 months clean and a life that I never could have imagined possible. Living with other women who have gone through what I have gone through has helped so much. It is so important to know that I don't have to be alone. Thank you so much Oxford House.


Carol My name is Carol Ann Parkin I am proud and honored to be a member of the Oxford House Dixie. I am 55 Years old and I took my first drink at the age of 12. I drank Alcoholically that day and every day since for the past 43 years. Alcohol and the disease of Alcoholism has cost me everything that was ever beautiful in my life including; my 26 years of marriage, the love and respect of my family, friends, and my horse ranch. Alcoholism is a disease that runs in my family and my decision to drink & use has negatively affected them. Since coming to the Oxford House 5 years ago I am proud to tell you that with the strong relationships, love and support of the house I breathe recovery here. I am proud to tell my family and friends I just celebrated 1 year clean and sober. I have left the house 3 times and have only been successful once, that was when I was living with my daughter and her family. I need to be here in this beautiful home that we have been giving. I live and breathe because of this house, the structure it provides, I know I cannot do this alone. I will be a life- long member of the Oxford House Dixie. I have a rich and beautiful life today. I thank God every day that the owners Julie & Ivan Tippetts found it there mission/ calling to open their hearts, their home and their wallets to help women just like me. It is my honor and privilege to live here.


Ashley When I moved into the Oxford House at 23 years old I had already been thru multiple jails and institutions. I was convinced that was the way life would always be for me. I had no respect for myself or others. I definitely had no idea how to have relationships with family friends and most of all women. The oxford house showed me I can have women in my life, I can love myself and I am capable of being honest, trustworthy women. Because of the Oxford House I have not only my blood family back in my life but I have many women in my life that I consider my sisters. I have been here almost 1 year and my sisters have been by my side through all of my ups and downs. I have even been blessed to start my own family ant they all can't wait to be aunts to my little one. I love this house so much and love what it does for women in recovery. With out the Oxford House there is know telling where I would be today?


Amy Well ladies and gentlemen it was 2 yrs ago today I walked out of pcf after doing 13 months in prison. I am honestly thankful for my time spent in draper in purgatory. if Shumate hadn't sentenced me that day who knows where I'd be. I am where I'm at in my life because I did go to prison.

I met some amazing woman along the way. ladies I still talk to when I need support or to just b.s. I found the rooms of n.a. and a.a. I will never be able to put into words how important those friends are.

I'm making better and wiser choices. life is good.
