Oxford House: Where Stories of Recovery Are Born

New book is a compilation of stories from addicts and alcoholics who gained sobriety in Oxford House

HI, USA (Vocus) July 3, 2010 -- “Oxford House is a true blessing for those who really want recovery.” This is the common sentiment of all men and women who owe their sobriety to this institution. Today, author Joe Chavez shares their stories in I Second The Motion: Learning to Live Sober, an Xlibris release.

According to Chavez, Oxford houses have been in continuous existence since the first house opened in 1975. Today, there are over 1,300 houses opened in forty-three states in the United States including international houses in Canada, Australia, and one located in Ghana. This book is a collection of stories from the men and women of the Oxford House. Their lives have changed for the better in this institution, overcoming addiction using a peer-based strategy of group living.

“The stories in this book are from people who, as you will read, were hard-core addicts and alcoholics who gained long-term sobriety only after living in Oxford House. This is a testament to the power of positive peer pressure and democracy in a diverse and, sometimes, contentious environment,” says Chavez.

This book is an extended invitation to anyone suffering from addiction. Through its inspirational stories, I Second The Motion: Learning to Live Sober preaches that acceptance is the key to recovery. For more information on this book, log on to
