Oxford House Laurel is a self-run, self-supported recovery house for recovering alcoholics and drug addicts. This house is open to women and children only. Every Oxford house represents an effective and low cost method of preventing relapse. A representative of every House in the area meets with the others on a monthly basis, to share 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 Laurel pay all the expenses related to the maintenance of the house. There are 8 beds in this self-supporting and drug free home. This self-supporting and drug free home is operated by Oxford House, a non-profit network headquartered in Silver Spring.
