Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Socialhögskolan

Sammanfattning: The purpose of this study is to investigate how relatives experience living next to close relative with substance abuse problems. And what the support the relatives have received from various agencies that they have come into contact with in connection with their related abuse. With the purpose of the study as a starting point, a qualitative research approach was chosen and with autobiographies as empirical material. I have since chosen two differens theoretical theories and they are Goffman´s stigma concepts and different coping strategies. Previous research on the chosen subject is clearly limited, however, the research that exists shows that support for relatives is a neglected area. The results of the study show that the relatives´ everyday lives have been affected as the abuse of their relatives has brought with negative consequences both when it comes to practical things, financially, emotionally and also socially. The results show that there is a lack of support from authorities and, above all, from social services. The majority of the relatives believe that there is a lot of guilt and shame related to abuse, which prevents the relatives from seeking help. The relatives point out they have a feeling of powerlessness about how to deal with an addiction.
