“I have had my fair share of abuse, so I'm done with that” : A qualitative study about the way out of drug abuse (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka subjektiva upplevelser av vägen ut ur narkotikamissbruk. Centralt för studien har varit att undersöka vad som enligt intervjudeltagarna har föranlett uppbrottet samt vad som har varit viktigt för att vidmakthålla drogfrihet. Studien bygger på narrativa intervjuer med fem individer som har haft ett tidigare narkotikamissbruk. Huvudresultatet visade att intervjudeltagarnas motiv för att lämna missbruket var till följd av missbrukets negativa konsekvenser. Flera av intervjudeltagarna uppgav att de hade nått en personlig botten innan de beslutade sig för att lämna missbrukslivet. Studiens resultat visade även att viktiga faktorer för att lyckas lämna missbruket var att byta vänskapskrets samt bostadsort. Det viktigaste i detta avseende var dock den egna viljan att sluta. För att vidmakthålla det drogfria livet visade resultatet att flera faktorer var betydelsefulla. Framträdande i intervjudeltagarnas berättelser var betydelsen av att ha en sysselsättning.
