Oxford House Hermitage is a democratically run, self-supporting and drug free home. This is an all female house. 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 women of Oxford House Hermitage pay all the expenses related to the maintenance of the house. This facility has a maximum capacity of 8 residents. This self-supporting and drug free home is operated by Oxford House, a non-profit network headquartered in Silver Spring.
