Summary Sociologist Allison McKim gives an in-depth and innovative ethnographic account of two women's rehab programs, one located in the criminal justice system and one located in the private healthcare system--two very different ways of defining and treating addiction. Her study ultimately reveals a two-tiered system, bifurcated by race and class. Â Â
