"Mr policeman doesn´t solve the narcotic problem!" : A qualitative study about clients influence on addiction treatment. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studien syftar till att utifrån ett brukarperspektiv belysa hur stort inflytande brukare inom den kommunala missbruksvården har på sin egen vård. Brukare avses i detta fall personer som har och har haft en kontakt med missbruks- och beroendevården över tid. För att besvara studiens syfte har fem brukare intervjuats. Studiens data har sedan analyserats med hjälp av maktteori. Studien visar att upplevelsen av inflytande påverkar vården och att den kan variera hos brukarna beroende på vilka egenskaper de själva besitter, de professionella besitter och hur relationen dem emellan utvecklas. Samtliga brukare i studien upplevde att de befann sig i ett underläge i maktförhållandet gentemot de professionella. För att känslan av inflytande skulle vara stark hos brukarna krävdes det att de professionella hade en förmåga att förhålla sig till och i viss mån reducera obalansen i maktförhållandet. Att brukarna kände att de hade makten att påverka vården samt att de blev lyssnade på var centralt för att en känsla av inflytande skulle infinna sig. Om detta inte var närvarande i relationen med de professionella infann sig istället en känsla av maktlöshet och begränsat inflytande.          

Abstract [en]

This study aims to explore what client’s connected to their local council’s alcohol and substance abuse treatment thinks matter for their own care. The aim of exploration concretized to involve clients influence over their own care.  Clients in this case are referred to people who have and have had a contact with the alcohol and substance abuse treatment over time. To respond to the study's purpose five clients has been interviewed. The data were then analyzed by using a theory of power. The study shows that the client´s experience of influence matters and may vary depending on the characteristics the clients themselves possess, the professional possess and how the relationship between them evolves. All clients in the study felt that they were in a lower position of power compared to the professionals. To create a strong feeling of influence within the clients the professional had to have an ability to relate to and, to a certain extent reduce the imbalances in power relations. To create a feeling of influence within the clients they had to feel that they had the power to affect the care and that they were listened to. If this was not present in the relationship with the professionals, a sense of powerlessness and limited influence appeared instead.
