When the drugs take over : A qualitative analysis of people's experiences of living with substance abuse syndrome (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Substanssyndrom är en kronisk sjukdom som kommer till följd av långvarigt bruk av narkotika. Det finns cirka 29 500 personer i Sverige som har ett utvecklat substanssyndrom. Riskfaktorer kan vara tidigare trauma, uppväxt och ärftlighet. Substanssyndromet påverkar hälsan både psykiskt och fysiskt och leder till ett lidande. Stigmatisering av fenomenet finns i samhället. Det behövs ytterliggare kunskap för att sjuksköterskan ska kunna tillgodose patientens behov. Syfte: Beskriva vuxna personers upplevelser av att leva med substanssyndrom. Metod: En kvalitativ analys har gjorts på bloggar skrivna av personer som själva lider av substanssyndrom. Etiska överväganden har gjorts för att anonymisera personerna bakom bloggarna. Resultat: I resultatet framkommer personers upplevelser under tre huvudkategorier; känna tillhörighet i en ny miljö, när drogerna tar över och att inte orka leva under drogernas påverkan. Konklusion: Mer förståelse för hur personer upplever sin beroendeproblematik krävs för att sjuksköterskan ska kunna möta patienten och ha kunskap för att ge rätt vård.

Abstract [en]

Background: Substance syndrome is a chronic disease that results from long-term drug use. There are about 29,500 people in Sweden who have a developed substance syndrome. Risk factors can be past trauma, upbringing and heredity. The substance syndrome affects health both mentally and physically and leads to suffering. Stigmatization of the phenomenon exists in society. Additional knowledge is needed for the nurse to be able to meet the patient's needs. Aims: To describe adult’s experiences of living with substance abuse syndrome. Method: A qualitative analysis has been made on blogs written by people who themselves suffer from substance syndrome. Ethical considerations have been made to anonymize the people behind the blogs. Results: The result shows people's experiences under three main categories; feel a sense of belonging in a new environment, when the drugs take over and not being able to live under the influence of the drugs. Conclusion: More understanding of how people experience their addiction problems is required for the nurse to meet the patient and have the knowledge to provide the right care.
