Relatives’ integration in addiction treatment : Social workers’ and addiction therapists’ perspective (English)
Abstract [sv]

Socialtjänsten och tidigare forskning beskriver att anhörigas integrering i missbruksvården är bristfällig. Trots detta understryker allt mer forskning att denna integrering är en viktig och betydelsefull del i missbruksvården. Utifrån detta ämnade vi undersöka hur anhöriga integreras och vilken betydelse integreringen hade för de anhöriga, för missbrukaren samt för missbruksvården och behandlingen. Studien genomfördes genom fyra kvalitativa intervjuer med socialsekreterare och missbruksbehandlare som var verksamma inom Socialtjänstens vuxenenhet. Resultaten utifrån hermeneutisk tolkning, empowerment- och systemteori visade att anhörigas integrering i ett professionsperspektiv är en självklar del i arbetet med missbrukaren och att integreringen har stor betydelse för såväl missbrukarens tillfrisknande som för anhörigas livskvalité. Integreringen skapade kunskap och förståelse bland de anhöriga så att de frångick sin roll som möjliggörare för missbruksbeteendet och lärde sig sätta gränser gentemot missbrukaren. För att missbrukarens tillfrisknande skulle vara hållbart var således förutsättningen att missbruket sattes i förhållande till ett större sammanhang, missbrukarens sociala nätverk.

Abstract [en]

The social services and previous research has argued that the integration of relatives and close family to addictive health care is lacking. Despite this, an increasing number of researchers underline its importance and meaningfulness in addictive health care. Building on this, our aim was to investigate how relatives and close family are integrated in addictive health care and what implications it has for the relatives, the addict, as well as the addictive healt care and the treatment. The study is based on four qualitiative interviews with social workers and treaters of addictive behaviors. The results based on heremenutic interpretation, empowerment- and systems theory showed that the integration of relatives from a professional perspective is an obvious part of the work with the addict and that the intregation have a great impact on the addict’s recovery as well as on the quality of life for the relatives. The integration built on knowledge and understanding among the relatives, enabled them to divert from their role as enablers of addictive behavior, and instead being able to set boundaries against the addict. In order to make the addicts recovery durable, a prominent condition was thus that the addiction was put into a bigger frame, i.e. the addict’s social network.
