Oxford House Utah may enjoy all the privileges of Oxford House as long as it adheres to the following three conditions:
- The House must be self-run on a democratic basis;
- The House must be financially self- supporting; and
- Any resident who drinks alcohol or uses drugs must be immediately expelled.
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. We have seen those that commit to the Oxford House rules and guidelines, for 18 months, increase their recovery success rates up to 80%.
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.

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?
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.

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.
