Abstract [en]

Karlsson, E. (2016). Students' perceptions about drug prevention in high school.  

The aim of the study was to investigate high school student’s experiences of and needs of drug prevention in school is and should be. The use or misuse of alcohol, drugs and tobacco is one of the biggest threats to public health. Students' opinions and participation of the preventive measures against drug and alcohol use is a good starting point to achieve a successful result. A qualitative approach was chosen to take part of the students' experiences. A total of eleven high school students participated in the study, focus groups were used as method. The results showed that the students were not aware that there exists any drug prevention at their school and they didn´t feel any participation. The students wish for participation in drug prevention projects at the school and follow-ups of work in progress.

Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka hur gymnasieelevers upplevelser och behov av drogförebyggande arbete på skolan är och bör vara. Användning eller missbruk av alkohol, narkotika och tobak är ett av de största hoten mot folkhälsan. Elevernas åsikter och delaktighet till förebyggande insatser mot en drog- och alkoholanvändning är en bra utgångspunkt till att nå ett lyckat resultat. En kvalitativ ansats valdes för att ta del av elevernas upplevelser. Bekvämlighetsurval användes och metoden var gruppintervjuer i fokusgrupper. Sammanlagt deltog elva gymnasieelever vid två fokusgrupptillfällen. Resultatet visade att eleverna inte var medvetna om det aktivt pågick något drogförebyggande arbete på skolan annat än rökfria zoner och de kände heller ingen delaktighet i drogförebyggande arbete. Eleverna eftersökte uppföljningar av pågående drogförebyggande arbeten samt delaktighet i dessa.
