Description
Summary:Addiction Treatment is ethnography that compares two types of residential drug-free treatment programs-religious, faith-based programs and science-based, secular programs. Through extensive participatory observations, intimate life history interviews, and informal conversations with residents and staff, Hood shows how both programs use the same basic techniques of ideological persuasion, methods of social control, and the same proposed zero tolerance, abstinent lifestyle as they endeavor to transform clients from addicts to citizens or from sinners to disciples
