The Massachusetts Sober Housing Corporation (MSHC) is a non-profit corporation organized pursuant to Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our mission is to provide sober housing for individuals in recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction. The housing model we utilize is Oxford House, which has been the most successful nationwide sober housing model and which is based on three simple principles: 

1.  The house must be self-run on a democratic basis. 

2.  The house must be financially self-supported.

3.  Any resident who drinks alcohol or uses drugs must be immediately expelled.

Massachusetts Sober Housing Corporation has four Oxford houses throughout Massachusetts for men and women in recovery to live in comfortable, affordable houses in good neighborhoods and to benefit from the peer support of others in recovery that is so important to maintaining sobriety.

If you are a recovering individual and would like to learn more about Oxford House, visit the Oxford House web site. For information about our houses and to apply for membership in a house, go to the "Our Houses" page.

There are many facets to Oxford Houses and the residents who live in them.   To read a summary of DePaul University's research with Oxford Houses, click on the logo.
