Sammanfattning: Comorbidity of addiction and mental illness is a complex problem that according to social research often is linked to each other. This is a current problem that exists in several countries. The purpose of this study has been to investigate how the professionals in the social services and health care experience that collaboration and comorbidity are expressed between the two instances. The chosen method in this study is qualitative interviews. We have interviewed a total of eight respondents from different municipalities. Four social workers in social services, three social workers in health care and a reference person who is a specialist nurse in psychiatry. The interviews have been analyzed with the help of the new institutional theoretical perspective, organizational theory and capital theory. In order of processing the data, we have used a thematic analysis. The conclusion in this study is that comorbidity is a common phenomenon, without collaboration to help the individual. The respondents see comorbidity as a complex problem, they do not know which problem comes first of the abuse and the mental illness. In this study, the economic aspect of Swedish compulsory care, such as the resources between the instances, have appeared to be problematic. The results of the study show that the current Swedish system is not necessary to treat individuals with comorbidity. The resources that are used to pay society are not enough to help the individual to be free from addiction and mental illness. The study illuminates the comorbidity that people with substance abuse and mental illness gets. Where care from the social services and health care at the same time results in the individual not receiving the help they need.
