Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna kvalitativa studie var att undersöka missbrukande kvinnors tankar kring och upplevelser av samhällets och nätverkets bemötande samt attityder till kvinnligt missbruk. För att besvara uppsatsens frågeställningar genomfördes fem intervjuer med kvinnor som missbrukat främst alkohol. I analysen granskades resultatet utifrån genusperspektiv, stämplingsteori samt teorier om bemötande. Då det inte fanns någon tidigare forskning som direkt berörde studiens syfte användes närliggande forskning. Den tidigare forskningen visade att män och kvinnor i vårt samhälle bemöts på olika sätt. Denna studie fokuserade på de missbrukande kvinnornas upplevelser av bemötande och var ingen jämförande studie mellan kvinnor och män. Genusforskningen har lett till att kvinnors missbruk lyfts fram, vilket i sin tur har bidragit till nya behandlingsalternativ. Trots detta ses det kvinnliga missbruket fortfarande som normbrytande i vårt samhälle. Dessa icke tillåtande attityder till kvinnligt missbruk kan vara en orsak till att denna studies respondenter utvecklade olika strategier för att dölja sina missbruk. Studiens resultat visade att kvinnorna oftast upplevde sig ha blivit positivt bemötta men genomgående i resultatet framkom även exempel på negativt bemötande från så väl nätverk som professionella. Studien visade att professionellas och nätverkets bemötande är betydelsefullt för ett framgångsrikt förändringsarbete vilket pekar på att mer forskning kring ämnet behövs.

Abstract [en]

The object of this qualitative study was to examine how female addicts feel about their experiences of treatment from society, family and friends. To answer the questions at issue, five women were interviewed. In the analysis the result was reviewed on the basis of gender perspective, sociology of deviance and theories about treatment. Since there was no previous research to be found about this subject, contiguous research had to be used. The previous research showed that women and men in our society are treated differently. The focus of this study was the women’s experiences of treatment and does not compare the differences between women and men. The research of gender has brought attention to substance abusing women and has also led to new forms of treatment. Despite this, female addiction is still being viewed as violation of the standards in our society. These impermissible attitudes about female addiction could be a reason why the respondents of this study developed different strategies in effort to hide their addictions. The result of this study showed that these women have been treated in a positive way most of the time, but consistently the result also showed that these women have been treated in a negative way by family, friends and professionals. This study showed that the treatment from professionals, family and friends is of great importance for the women in their struggle to stay free from substance abuse. This study showed that more research about this subject is needed.
