<p>This ethnography continues the &ldquo;thick description&rdquo; of faith-based and science-based drug programs begun in <em>Addiction Treatment</em>. Using extensive interviews and his own participation in daily rounds of treatment, Hood provides a vivid comparison of resident experience at each type of institution.</p><p><em>Redemption and Recovery </em>tells the stories of two houses in the Bronx, NY that serve people with drug problems: &ldquo;Redemption House&rdquo; and &ldquo;Recovery House.&rdquo; These stories include the direct accounts of residents&rsquo; &ldquo;druggin&rsquo;&rdquo; lives <em>before </em>treatment and their search for normalcy <em>after </em>recovery or redemption. Other chapters dissect the religion of science-based treatment and compare success rates, religious vs. secular.</p><p><em>Addiction Treatment </em>had detailed a similar process of personal conversion central to both treatments. This sequel uses the &ldquo;contextualized demographics&rdquo; of residents to uncover profound parallels between the two &ldquo;unique&rdquo; programs and debunk their shared ideology of abstinence.</p>
