  "Paradoxical Treatment: Drug-Using Women's Navigations of Impossible Identities in Rural Appalachia  
(Special Event)

Stigmatizations of drug-using women are linked with public policies that decrease social services and criminalize women's drug use. Based on ethnographic research in rural Appalachia, Lesly-Marie Buer's talk explores how women navigate these stigmatized identities when encountering state-funded treatment for substance abuse. With a focus on women's own stories, Lesly-Marie Buer examines how women's access to treatment is often dependent on their willingness to identify as "bad mothers."
