Book on addictions read.

I finished a medical sociology book called What's Wrong with Addiction? by Helen Keane, an Australian scholar. It took me about 4 months to finish it. She basically questions and suggests resistance to the widening definition or label of addiction. She points to the lack of asserting recovery literature as a moral and value filled enterprise that basically supports the liberal democratic society. Addiction and recovery discourse ignores difference.
