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
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
