SHARC/Mind Oxford Houses


SHARC/Mind Oxford Houses are about providing opportunity for men and women seeking recovery from addiction to alcohol or other drugs – an opportunity to establish a life free of addiction problems.

The core philosophy of Oxford Houses is to provide a secure, supportive and affordable home environment in which residents can build the foundations of a lasting recovery. Residents in each house group are responsible and accountable for managing the affairs of their home within the Oxford Houses guidelines, strengthening individual recovery and sharing in the recovery of fellow residents.


 To be eligible for residency at a SHARC/Mind Oxford House, an applicant needs to:

  • Be fully committed to continuing abstinence from alcohol and/or other drugs
  • Be currently working on some form of recovery or willing to develop a personal recovery plan
  • Have a minimum of 30 consecutive days clean time immediately before taking up residence
  • Be prepared to participate in the life of the house and abide by the house rules.

Persons on a drug replacement therapy (such as Methadone and Buprenorphine) are not eligible for the service.
