"Being a parent of a child in addiction means that you need support around you, otherwise you break."  : A qualitative study on parents of children with addiction and their experiences of social services support and treatment (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this qualitative study was to gain knowledge about parents of children with substance abuse and their experiences of social services support and treatment. The data collection consists of seven individual qualitative and semi-structured interviews with parents of children with substance abuse. The results were interpreted with a hermeneutic perspective and later on categorised and presented with a qualitative content analysis. The theoretical framework that has been used to analyse this study is systems theory. This study shows that the parents in our study did not get any support from the social services. Instead the parents found support in non-profit support groups and in their family and friends. The results also show that the parents in this study did not feel like the social services worked with them and other support groups, but instead only focused on the child with the substance abuse.
