Thompson, Carlyle Marsden, Gordon Ray Church, and all the other bright souls who did not survive Mormonism's homophobia. And to those of us who have survived, that we might bear witness In doing so, it became apparent to me that Mormon women found that the intensity of female homosociality  available in Mormon structures created a vital space in which they could explore passionate, romantic relationships with each other. At the same time I have uncovered some of the problematics of male homosociality - its power to arbitrarily defend or exile men accused of entering into erotic relationships with other men.
Share on Twitter The last image we have of Patrick Cagey is of his first moments as a free man. He has just walked out of a day drug treatment center in Georgetown, Kentucky, dressed in gym clothes and carrying a Nike duffel bag.
His face bright, he sticks his tongue out in embarrassment. Four days later, he will be dead from a heroin overdose. Patrick was recuperating from surgery for a knee injury suffered during his sophomore wrestling season.
Back in the wood-paneled living room of their Lexington, Kentucky, home that afternoon, Patrick and his parents began an impromptu family meeting about what to do next. Patrick took the footrest between them, sitting with his hands on his knees. Was he ready to be home?
Did he have a plan to get a sponsor? Maybe he should start looking for a job or apply to graduate school? Before he entered Recovery Works, the Georgetown treatment center, Patrick had been living in a condo his parents owned. But they decided that he should be home now.
He would attend Narcotics Anonymous meetings, he would obtain a sponsor — a fellow recovering addict to turn to during low moments — and life would go on. As they talked, though, a new reality quickly set in.
In her shock and heartbreak, Anne looked away. Jim had worked for decades as a public school English teacher and taught at aviation camps as an amateur pilot.
Anne was in nursing and health care administration. Before Patrick was born, she had even helped run a methadone clinic treating heroin addicts and later had worked in substance abuse and psychiatric wards for the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Jim and Anne knew how to be steady in a crisis. So many of her clients had done well: She was also familiar with a newer maintenance medication on the market sold under the brand name Suboxone.
Unlike methadone, it can be prescribed by a certified family physician and taken at home, meaning a recovering addict can lead a normal life, without a daily early-morning commute to a clinic.
The medical establishment had come to view Suboxone as the best hope for addicts like Patrick. Yet of the dozens of publicly funded treatment facilities throughout Kentucky, only a couple offer Suboxone, with most others driven instead by a philosophy of abstinence that condemns medical assistance as not true recovery.
Even at clinics that offer the medication, the upfront costs and budget limitations render it out of reach for the vast majority who come through their doors.
But Patrick had insurance, and Anne, with her treatment background, thought she could find a prescribing doctor. We can put you on methadone or we can get you Suboxone. There are other things that you can do besides the step program.
But Patrick had just left a facility that pushed other solutions. And the role of the therapist he was assigned seemed limited to reminding him of the rules he was expected to follow. Still, by the second week, he appeared to take responsibility for his addiction.
Patrick was willing to try sobriety one meeting at a time. I want to try this first. The rituals of self-discipline were nothing new.
He had been a dominant wrestler in high school and a competitive bodybuilder in his early 20s. At his training peak, he measured and recorded his water intake down to the ounce.In early summer, Judy and Dennis Shepard bought plane tickets to give a speech to the workforce at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia.
