Abstract [en]


In this study, five people were interviewed who are involved in a drug-assisted program for opiate addiction, also called substitution program. The meaning of substitution is that these clients' drug addiction is replaced with substitute preparations, either methadone or Subutex in an orderly manner. The clients of the researcher decided to study the substitution program have all been a heavy opiate addiction for years. Their participation in the replacement program is more than two years, and those who have been around the longest have been in the program for six years, so long as the substitution program has existed in Visby.This is a qualitative study in which interviews are conducted face to face with each individual client, and the interview was unstructured in the sense that no specific issues made in advance. The interviews have been themed, and the researcher has gone through various areas of life around the respondent. The researcher was paid partly from a salutogenic perspective, and selected KASAM-theory, but also Goldberg's conspiracy theory and Ex-processes. The aim has been to try to find out which social factors play in a person's life because he or she should be able to be of abuse. It can, for example be about networking, work/employment, housing or health. The result shows that one's family, home and health are among the main reasons for their enforcement to be addiction free. But this would not be met if they had not received their replacement therapy.
