  There are lots of books that talk about the life of a lawyer or a doctor in general. There are books about prison inmates and even correctional officers. But, to my knowledge, no one has ever written a book describing the experience of working as a physician in a jail or prison. Maximum Insecurity: A Doctor in the Supermax fills that void. This.   The delicate palate of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman — who had once requested bottled water behind bars — is in for a rude awakening once he gets to supermax prison in Colorado.

  The first two parts of this series begin to tell the tale of the way a handful of mentally ill prisoners allege they are being treated at ADX-Florence, widely known as "Supermax" and commonly. This article was published in collaboration with Vice.. Not many people ever make it out of the ADX. Officially called the United States Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility in Florence — and colloquially known as the “Alcatraz of the Rockies” — the ADX is the highest-security federal prison in the country, located in the Colorado mountains.

A super-maximum security (supermax) or administrative maximum (ADX) prison is a "control-unit" prison, or a unit within prisons, which represent the most secure levels of custody in the prison systems of certain countries. The objective is to provide long-term, segregated housing for inmates classified as the highest security risks in the prison system—the "worst of the worst" criminals.
