Oxford House Jefferson Drive is one of many sober living facilities operating under the Oxford House umbrella. Located in an apartment complex in Fairbanks, Alaska, the men only Jefferson Drive facility is situated south of the Yukon River with bucolic views of Alaska’s White Mountain range.
Accommodations and Amenities
OHJ has two units in a 12-unit residential apartment complex. Each has three single-occupancy bedrooms, one shared bathroom, a living room and a kitchen, allowing for six clients total. Wifi, electricity, heating and water are included in monthly house fees. A cable connection is available, but clients must provide their own TV.
Each man is responsible for his own food, linens, toiletries and household cleaning supplies and there is coin-operated laundry facilities located in the building. While the complex does not have a pool or outdoor recreation area, there is a park within a short walking distance.
Rules and Regulations
All potential candidates must have at least six months clean and sober and be gainfully employed. There is zero-tolerance for substance use, stealing or violence of any kind. Per Oxford House guidelines, the house manager is elected by the residents and serves a six-month term. All incoming clients must be screened by the manager prior to admission and after the initial interview, the remaining clients must unanimously approve the new resident.
In order to keep costs low and promote independence, OHJ does not conduct drug testing, nor is there a disciplinarian to enforce house rules. Each man is responsible for cleaning his own room, while cleaning the common areas is a group effort. While OHJ was originally founded by sober members of AA, there are no steadfast rules as to whether a resident attends 12-step meetings. Men are accountable to each other and their own personal commitment to sobriety. Rent is due on the first of each month and non-payment is grounds for eviction.
OHJ offers affordable sober living for men who are well on the road to recovery but who may not be ready to live on their own. With only three to each unit, OHJ combines fellowship, camaraderie and autonomy for a small group of men starting their new sober lives.
