From drugs to a transformed fellowship : A study of the social network´s significance from the LP-foundation´s aftercare (English)
The aim with our study was to understand former addict´s experience of social networks from the Lewi Pethrus foundation (LP foundation) aftercare. The method we have used is qualitative semi-structured interviews. We have interviewed eight persons, four men and four women. They have all been in contact with the LP foundation and are today drug free. The result of the study has shown that the fellowship, in the different social networks have been very important to maintain a drug free life. A feeling of affinity, being seen, feel supported and trusted, experience that someone believe in you, has been the most regarded in the social networks. The contact with the LP foundation and the church appeared to have a significant role in the LP foundation and the church appeared to have a significant role in the LP foundation aftercare to create new social networks. Having a job or study is also a key to build new relationships and is something that the LP foundations aftercare has contributed to. Our study also showed the necessity to break up with old friends from the time when they were addicts, who had a negative influence. Furthermore it was vital to re-establish the relationship with their children and also with their siblings.
