520    "Women in Narcotics Anonymous" looks at a sample of women 
       in Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and surveys the stigma they 
       perceive and shame they harbor as active and recovering 
       addicts. Past abuse, mental illness, and criminal 
       involvement are just a few of the causes and effects 
       associated with their drug addiction. Moreover, these 
       conditions sever their abilities to properly ascribe to 
       and live up to traditional gender expectations. Therefore,
       their recovery must confront the causes and conditions of 
       addiction as well as the double standard that they are 
       held to. Once members of NA, these women begin to let go 
       of the shame they feel by working the Twelve Steps. This 
       process is further facilitated by attending women-only 
       groups of NA and identifying with other women like 
       themselves. Even those women who are thought to be most 
       socially marginalized - poor, minority heroin and crack 
       addicts - are able to rid themselves of both the stigma 
       and shame that plagues them once in recovery
