Faces of Hope
Recovery Is Possible
Addiction impacts the lives of our friends, neighbors, and family members. Faces of Hope shows just a few of the countless people whose lives have been affected by the pain of addiction. Telling their personal stories reduces the stigma around addiction and inspires others to tell their stories. In their faces we don’t see the weight of addiction. We see the future. We see freedom. We see hope.
A Community of Support
Healthy people lead to healthy communities. Empowering those in recovery must extend beyond our walls. We are grateful for all our supporters and partners who seek to erase the stigma of addiction and provide connection to recovery and beyond. Together, we can help those around us.

Voices From Our Community
I love the Triangle Club because it offers so many different types of meetings every single day. There is a mixture of old-timers with long sobriety and young faces like mine. I learn something every time I am here. I have never seen anything like this offered anywhere.
I arrived at the Triangle Club at 51 years old with 3 kids, 2 divorces, 3 DWI’s. I was sleeping on the floor of my office, drinking around the clock, hating everyone and everything. I only wanted my license back but instead got a wonderful life. I’m seventy now and my grandchildren call me ‘Gumpy.’
I came 43 days after a DWI. I waited to come because I thought it was going to be some weird kind of cult. Instead it’s helped me find new hope.
I have found the Triangle Club to be a safe haven for me in recovery. A place I can go any time of the day when my mind isn’t right to find a fellow person in recovery. Being a recovering heroin addict, it was also important to find meetings I can relate in and speak freely about my disease. The Triangle Club offers meetings seven days a week and, has created what I consider to be a necessary part of my recovery on my path to where I am today and to my new life.
About Faces of Hope
Faces of Hope started as a thought-provoking photography exhibit by the talented local artist, Michael Winters, featuring people whose lives have been affected by the pain of addiction. Today, it continues as a way to raise awareness about addiction in our community and explore ways we can fight the growing epidemic of addiction and the detrimental effects of stigma.
Michael Winters is a photographer and Portsmouth High School counselor based in Dover, New Hampshire. He is inspired by classic cinema, fashion and the occasional run in with insomnia.
