Tonight at 9:00pm Road to Recovery has guests Anna Mabel Jones, Resource Coordinator and Mark Spence, Outreach Coordinator at Oxford House. Learn how its a self-supporting and drug free home. Parallel is the organizational structure of Oxford House, Inc. This is the umbrella organization which provides the network connecting all Oxford Houses and allocates resources to duplicate the Oxford House concept where needs arise.
The number of residents in a House may range from six to fifteen; there are houses for men, houses for women, houses which accept women with children, and men with children. Each House represents a remarkably effective and low cost method of preventing relapse. This was the purpose of the first Oxford House established in 1975, and this purpose is served, day by day, house after house, in each of over 2000 houses in the United States today.
