BUILDING OUR COMMUNITY
Trillium has combined our experience and resources with the vision for sober living at Oxford house to create a unique model that increases sober living options for people in eastern NC. This shared vision between Trillium and Oxford House will help improve the lives of many people in our coverage area. The Oxford House model is in use around the nation and has resulted in a system that creates another stable and sustainable support in the journey for recovery.

Oxford House’s initiative and contract with Trillium Health Resources, 2020 Vision for Recovery, will add 20 new sites with more than 100 beds total to the Trillium 26-county coverage area. In addition, the new contract will include resource development to support residents of the Oxford Houses. This will be accomplished through relationships and memorandums of agreement with community partners such as community colleges, vocational rehabilitation, court systems, and the Division of Employment Services.
Oxford Houses are a clean and sober housing option for individuals in recovery. As of March 31, 2016, there are 209 houses in North Carolina, with locations in 30 cities. With an average of 8 beds per house, there are more than 1,600 Oxford House beds in the state. Individuals typically enter an Oxford House after completing a drug and alcohol treatment program and must remain sober in order to remain as residents.
Following an application and approval process, individuals living in a house are expected to participate in a recovery program in the community during their residence. Residents must also follow basic house rules including contributions to household expenses and electing officers.
