Chasing the Scream tells the story of Hannah, a woman who experienced marked trauma in her life. Hannah stayed at the Portland Hotel Society, which provides safe housing for individuals struggling with substance misuse.
The book states, “To the prohibitionists, Hannah is a failure, because she continued using drugs. To the Portland Hotel Society, she was a success, because she knew she was loved.” (Hari, 2015, p. 167)
