Dr. Friedman’s areas of interest include deviance, substance use, qualitative methods, gender, and Latina studies. With Marissa Alicea she authored Surviving Heroin: Interviews with Women in Methadone Clinics which uses a multi-methodological approach to explore the relationship between heroin use and race, class, and gender oppression. Currently, she is exploring the life history of a poor Puerto Rican woman who is a former heroin user and is now on methadone.
