The Latah Recovery Center officially closed on a property for the city’s first Oxford House — a group home for people recovering from drug or alcohol addiction. 

The property sold for 450-thousand dollars, and is located on Bitterroot street in Moscow. 

It will house seven residents, who could move in as early as July.

Recovery center director Darrell Keim says the center received 200-thousand dollars from the county commissioners in February. 

Next Monday, the center’s board will ask the same of the city.

Keim: “We’re sticking with that proposal … When the county agreed to give us 200-thousand, they challenged us to try and get the city to match that.”

The board initially made their request to the city in April, but the decision was tabled due to a limit on grants to nonprofits. That language has since been revised.
