    schema:reviewBody ""In this Anglo-Scottish perspective, the author looks at the interaction of the three strands represented in the title and highlights their often competing aims and agendas. Against this background Women, Drugs and Custody focuses on: the approach of HM Prison Service for England and Wales and the Scottish Prison Service to drug users in prison; policies and guidelines and the role of discretion in their implementation and effect; the emphasis of day-to-day practice: the impact of drugs on prison regimes and vice-versa; the experiences of women drug users in prison in their own words; health, hygiene and self-harm, and the reflections of staff seeking to balance 'care' of drug users with the demands of security and control; tensions inherent in a growing prison population with a significant drug user element, including illicit drugs in (and into) prison and the culture of violence; the social construction of drug use and stereotyping of drug users; disclosure of drug use, withdrawal, rehabilitation and links with the community; how the social control of women extends into the penal area, including the 'medicalising', 'pathologising' and 'criminalising' of women drug users, who may be styled 'sick', 'deviant' or 'depraved'; and how prescribed drugs and illicit drugs each present unusually complex problems in an environment where security and control take priority."--BOOK JACKET." ;
