Recovery Responsibility Democracy



Q: How much does it cost to live at an Oxford House in Hawaii?

A. The average weekly rent in Hawaii is $100.00 per week.


Q: What are the requirements for admission to the house?


A. The ideal candidate would have 30 days sober and the means to support themselves. However, formal substance abuse treatment and 30 sober days is not a requirement. It is always best to contact the house to setup an interview for the applicant. Each house will conduct their own interview and an 80% yes vote by the existing membership is needed to approve all new members


Q: What are the House rules?

. Each house will develop rules designed to keep the house clean, solvent and functioning. All Oxford Houses operate using three fundamental rules:


No Drug or Alcohol use on or off the property. Using illegal drugs or abusing prescription or over the counter medication or consuming alcohol on or off the premises is strictly prohibited. Violation of this rule will result in immediate expulsion from the group. Even if a member is only suspected of relapsing on drugs or alcohol; they may be asked to leave in by majority vote members of the house suspect that a member has relapsed.

The House must be self-supporting. Each member must pay their equal share of expenses in full each and every month. In Hawaii rent begins on the 5th of each month and concludes on the 4th of the following month.

The House must function as a disciplined democracy. Oxford Houses are democratically self-run by the residents who elect officers to serve for terms of six months. In this respect, they are similar to a college fraternity sorority or a small New England town. Officers have fixed terms in office to avoid bossism or corruption of egalitarian democracy
