To leave the alcohol behind : A qualitative study on the road to sobriety with focus on motivation and turning points (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med den här studien är att genom en kvalitativ intervjustudie undersöka vilken typ av motivation samt, i den mån de existerar, vändpunkter som lett till att individer har tagit sig ur ett alkoholmissbruk. Studien har utförts genom sex intervjuer med privatpersoner som har levt med alkoholmissbruk och via behandling fått hjälp att ta sig ur sagda missbruk. Intervjuerna bokades med hjälp av socialtjänsten i en mellansvensk kommun där samtliga respondenter har utfört sin behandling. Vi har tolkat vår empiri genom stämplingsteori och defining moments. Resultatet presenterar teman som belyser likheter i respondenternas upplevelser. Resultatet påvisar att individer behöver få en insikt om sitt missbruk för att behandling ska kunna ha en positiv påverkan. Denna insikt införskaffas genom olika processer eller fysiska skador som påverkat respondenterna liv. Även motivation från individen själv och det privata nätverket påverkar möjligheterna att ta sig ur ett alkoholmissbruk. Respondenterna ansåg att behovet av behandling är nyckeln för att bli fri från alkoholmissbruk då de ansåg att de inte hade kunskap eller möjlighet för att göra det själva. Detta är något som stärks av tidigare forskning inom området.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is that through a qualitative interview study investigating what kind of motivation and, to the extent they exist, turning points that led individuals to emerged from an alcohol addiction. The study was conducted through six interviews with individuals who have been living with alcohol abuse and through the treatment received help to get out of said abuse. The interviews was booked with the help of the social services in a Swedish municipality where all respondents have completed their treatment. We have interpreted our empiricism by labeling theory and defining moments. The result presents themes that highlight the similarities in the respondents' experiences. The result demonstrates that individuals need to get an insight into his addiction to treatment will have a positive impact. This insight is acquired through various processes or physical damage that affected respondents lives. The motivation of the individual and the private network allso affects the ability to get out of an alcohol abuse. Respondents felt that the need for treatment is the key to freedom from alcohol abuse when they felt that they did not have the knowledge or the ability to do it themselves. This is something that is supported by previous research in the area.
