This research aims to determine teacher perceptions on alcohol- and drug use among students, as well as how they implement the municipality framework against alcohol and drugs. The research was carried out in a midsized town in the centre of Sweden. It is characterized by an inductive approach and was performed through a qualitative method. Results were analyzed from a hermeneutic approach, and theories used are system theory, salutogenic approach and Mead’s symbolic interaction theory. One outcome from this research was the fact that teachers generally implement their work out of the municipality framework, even though teachers express their lack of knowledge about the content of the framework. Furthermore the research revealed that many teachers thought the relationship towards the students had a big impact on how they could manage to help them, that it was important that students felt that the teachers were trustworthy. The conclusion of this research is that there is a great variety regarding the commitment and knowledge among teachers when it comes to student usage of alcohol and drugs, even though teachers were given a common framework.
