The misuse of alcohol and other drugs in Ghana is an increasing public health concern. It affects individuals, families and communities.  Overcoming addiction in Ghana requires a coordinated effort. Recovery Africa believes that all Ghanaians need to have a better understanding about the use of alcohol and other drugs. When people become addicted, individuals and families should have places throughout Ghana to find help.

Recovery Africa has supported numerous projects in Ghana including the establishment of three Oxford houses, the creation of the House of St. Francis, the establishment of ten 12-step meetings in the Accra area and beyond. Check out the 'Our Projects' section to learn more about our various programs and initiatives.

Recovery Africa and the Hopeful Way Foundation established an Oxford House, transitional housing, in Accra in 2009 and it has been operating successfully since that time thanks to dedicated Ghanaians, Oxford House, Inc.
