In this project, I work through and build on relational understandings of bodies and spaces to bring different sensibilities to discussions of drug addiction and recovery, particularly as they relate to geographical matters. Largely drawing from post-structural, feminist, and Deleuzian inspired geographical theory and practice, I explore body-space relations in and through various drug addiction and recovery contexts to present alternative political and ethical mappings than those given by hegemonic narratives and ordered practices. Through different modes of encounter (film, families, institutions, and communities), I present the different ways in which drug users (including their social and familial relations) and spaces of drug addiction and recovery evolve and work to create for themselves a new, more active, healthy, body-space not necessarily confined to or limited by institutional or ideological controls
