I feel the concern and criticism of the Oxford House facility on Lauff Street is misguided and detrimental to our community well being. I’ve had limited involvement with the Oxford House Recovery Homes as well as some other addiction recovery homes here in Crescent City. I’m proud to have been of small help in the Oxford Home’s establishment.

In my view, the Oxford House facilities clearly and positively stand out in excellent management. The staff, residents and the properties are very good neighbors, effective in their purpose and if anything, improve the neighborhoods they are in. A brief drive by of either of their facilities should help relieve any concerns a person may have.

I wish to voice my appreciation to the developers, managers and residents of these homes for the service provided and their good citizenship. They offer an effective solution for our most pressing social problem, one that works.
