Reviews - What do customers think about Fighting Back: Women and the Impact of Drug Abuse on Families and Communities?

Unsolved problem  Jul 18, 2004
Perhaps to people like me who have never been to Dublin, it is hard to imagine that city afflicted by a heroin problem. But indeed that is so, as graphically described by Murphy-Lawless. She explains how Dublin has working class inner city districts burdened with high unemployment. Into this came a ready supply of heroin. The resultant plague of addicts was not unlike what occurred in suburbs like Parramatta in Sydney, for example. She shows how women in those Dublin districts coped. The women might have been addicts themselves. Or an immediate family member might be. Difficult times. Not in the least because the methadone cure is not always successful, and can be very addictive in its own right.

The author shows cases of positive outcomes. But not in every instance. Fatal overdoses are a recurrent phenomenon. No end in sight to this Dublin problem.
