Very good accumulation of the studies on Oxford Houses by the authors. I was especially interested in how Leonard Jason got started on his investigations. His work is exceptional and his findings essential to planning for recovery policy across the country.

An excellent and lucid description of the Oxford House. The book contains valuable research findings but is also accessible to the layman. Especially important is Chapter 11, which demonstrates the efficacy of the Oxford House rehabilitation model by citing a wide variety of studies, some of them done by the author.

Rescued Lives by Lenny Jason and others is a new Tally's Corner. The book is written in a readable, story-telling way but it tells the story of Oxford House with researched based evidence that shows why the 1,256 Oxford Houses that have sprung up around the country and how they hold out great promise for recovering alcoholics and drug addicts. By living together they are able to become comfortable enough in sobriety to stay clean and sober without relapse. Between 67% and 87% of the recovering individuals living in Oxford House will "make it" by achieving sobriety comfortable enough to avoid relapse. What a break through and what a story.
