Abstract [en]

This study was made to examine what the Fountain house can do to help their members and how the members feel about their situation and their ability to participate in their rehabilitation. To do so we contacted one of the Fountain houses in Sweden, located in Falkenberg, to get a better view of what their members thought about the process. Our main purpose with this study was to turn the spotlight on what the Fountain house organization means to its members. To do so we had two main questions that we wanted to examine more closely:

How do the members experience the Fountain house organization?

To which extend do the members feel that they are allowed to participate in their rehabilitation?

How much influence do the members feel that they have?

For this study we choose to use the qualitative method which included a lot of literature research, observations and interviews with members of the Fountain house organization. Our study also included looking at other researchers work and how they choose to approach their interview participates. We did this to get a grip on how we could structure our own interviews to work out for the best.

The main result of our study was that no matter what your reason for joining a Fountain house may be, the result of your membership will keep you feeling better about yourself in a way that makes you more available to accept the fact that you can do whatever you set your mind to.
