The Gratitude House is owned and operated by Realslow Recovery, LLC, a 501(c)3 non-profit with the mission to provide safe, affordable, and supportive housing for all people to live and grow in recovery from substance abuse. We provide recovery housing for men and women in a caring, family-oriented environment located in beautiful downtown Easton, Maryland.
The Gratitude House is an M-SARR and M-CORR certified recovery residence with the capacity for 10 men. By combining the latest in substance-abuse recovery research and evidence-based practice an innovative and successful program never before seen in the mid-shore region was implemented. The Gratitude House has been so successful at providing men with the structure and support needed to achieve recovery the house has had record low turnover and maintains a 96% capacity rate.
After almost a year of providing the means for men on the mid-shore region to recover and become responsible, productive members of society it was clear the organization needed to grow. Men aren’t the only ones in need- women need a Gratitude House, too. The ‘formula’ for success of The Gratitude House for Men is multi-faceted and was translated into The Gratitude House for Women exactly one year later. We are within walking distance to 12 step meetings seven days a week as well as multiple job opportunities and community resources. Our men’s house is fully wheelchair and handicapped accessible.
