GRATITUDE HOUSE

I took these portraits as part of an ongoing series reflecting the diversity of women affected by substance abuse. Gratitude House in West Palm Beach, Florida, is one of the only places in the country that treats pregnant women and women with infants, with the mission to return these women to society as self-sufficient, productive members. Through the Gratitude House programs, women receive treatment for drug and alcohol dependency issues, as well as parenting classes and life skills that make it possible to live independent, sober lives. Women are taught how to deal with their addictions, and with the life events that brought them to the place of chemical dependency.
