Abstract [en]

This study primarily investigated factors which impact abstaining from drugs for adolescent

men after finishing treatment at a specific treatment center in Sweden. The method chosen for

this essay was quantitative, using surveys sent to males that finished a treatment period of a

minimum time of 4 months at this therapeutic community. Of the 83 questionnaires that were

originally sent, 23 responded. Further, the empirical data was tested in the computer program

SPSS using gamma and lambda tests obtaining results for the factors to determine whether

they correlated with one another other. The essay is based upon the theoretical framework of

the salutogenic perspective, systems theory and therapeutic alliance theory. During this study

results showed that factors such as relocation, post treatment programs were effective for the

dis-continued use of drugs.
