Dopeless Hope Fiends is a chapbook with poems written by former residents of Naomi Inc., a non-profit treatment facility that provides shelter and beneficial services to women who seek recovery from alcohol and drug addiction.

This women’s voices in this book were captured during a series of facilitated poetry workshops at various stages in their journey towards healing.

Proceeds from Dopeless Hope Fiends will benefit the organization’s mission. To purchase a $10 copy of the chapbook, please visit the organization at naomith.org.

This book project was made possible through funding from the Toledo Arts Commission Accelerator Grant.
