Útdráttur: Sociologists and socio-legal scholars have explored how social fields transform social problems, but largely overlooked how social problems transform social fields. This research uses the U.S. opioid crisis as a case for examining how efforts to address a shared social problem have transformed the fields of healthcare and criminal justice.
