Oxford House Absecon is a self-run, self-supported recovery house for recovering alcoholics and drug addicts. This facility accepts men only. Every Oxford house represents an effective and low cost method of preventing relapse. A representative of each House in the Chapter meets with the others on a monthly basis, to exchange information, to seek resolution of problems in a particular House, and to express that Chapter's vote on larger issues.
The men of Oxford House Absecon pay all the expenses related to the maintenance of the house. This house accommodates eight residents. Oxford House Absecon is part of a publicly supported, non-profit 501(c)3 corporation umbrella organization which provides the network of all Oxford Houses and allocates resources to duplicate the Oxford House concept where needs arise.
