Rules and Regulations
In order to be admitted into an Oxford House, individuals must have completed either residential treatment or a detox program as Oxford Houses do not provide these services. Oxford House regulations are fairly simple: drugs and alcohol are strictly prohibited on the premises, residents must pay their rent on time and must be respectful of themselves and others in the home. Involvement in 12-step fellowships is not a requirement for Oxford Houses, though it is highly encouraged.
In addition to these standard rules, Douglas Street requires men to attend a weekly in-house meeting. Each house has a democratically elected president who represents the house in regional and national conferences, collects rent monies and resolve any household issues and disputes.
Oxford House fellows from neighboring counties and cities have monthly gatherings where they unite to establish a sober community.
In addition to the regional and national conferences, the Oxford House organization also hosts a World Convention where representatives and clients meet to discuss the functionality of the Oxford Houses and new techniques and strategies int he world of addiction treatment.
In keeping with Oxford House continuity, Douglas House is a comfortable, modest residence with little in the way of amenities. Sioux City is a recovery-friendly city, making sober resources and treatment easily accessible. Men who have a history of relapse or who are early in their recovery may find the structure too lenient, but individuals who are secure in their sobriety will find an ideal environment for developing autonomy and independence.
