Recovery Housing


Safe, stable, quality, affordable housing is an essential component of recovery from substance use disorder.  The department is proud to share the following resources for recovery housing, many of which we support in various forms.

Oxford House

Oxford Houses are safe, supportive housing options for adults at least 18 years old who are in recovery from alcohol abuse and/or drug abuse. Individuals must be motivated to live in a disciplined, supportive, alcohol- and drug-free living environment and able to gain employment or receive some type of legitimate financial assistance. Residents pay a weekly fee that includes rent, utilities, cable, and internet connection. The fee varies between $80 and $110 per week, depending on the location.

A listing of Oxford Houses in Tennessee along with vacancies and contact phone numbers can be found at this link.

Tennessee Association of Recovery Residences

Tennessee Association of Recovery Residences (TN-ARR) is a founding member of the National Alliance for Recovery Residences. The National Alliance for Recovery Residences (NARR) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to expanding the availability of well-operated, ethical, and supportive recovery housing.  They have developed a widely-referenced national standard for the operation of recovery residences. They work with and support 30 state affiliate organizations including one in Tennessee. NARR and these organizations collectively support over 25,000 persons in addiction recovery who are living in over 2,500 certified recovery residences throughout the United States.
