Hitta rätt när det gått snett - en kvantitativ studie av studenters relation till droger

Detta är en Uppsats för yrkesexamina på avancerad nivå från Lunds universitet/Institutionen för psykologi

Sammanfattning: The following study was conducted in order to answer the following questions: 1) Why do students start taking drugs in early adulthood?, 2) What does the ratio between students with early versus late onset drug use look like?, 3) Do students know where they could get professional help in case of drug use- related negative outcomes? and 4) What do they think of the healthcare available? Using the snowball sampling method, we reached out to students at Lund university. 150 students who adhered to the inclusion criteria answered an anonymous online survey about their relationship to drugs. Descriptive statistics as well as Mann Whitney U´s test and Chi-square test were employed in order to analyze the data. We found that most students initiate drug use for recreational purposes and don’t know where they would seek help in case they would need to do so. 23,1% of the students with experience of drug use initiated drug use during their studies. Almost none of the students had personal experience of seeking help for drug related issues. However, for many students, seeking professional help was either not an option at all or only something to be considered unless in a life-threatening situation. In conclusion, health care providers, especially the Student health council, need to improve their means of reaching out to students, as well as making the health care itself more attractive. Keywords: students, illicit drug use, drug use onset, drug use experience, student health council
