English abstract
The purpose of this study has been to gain an understanding of how drug addicts get out of an addiction from the perspective of people who have previously been addicted to narcotics. To achieve the purpose of this study we interviewed former addicts and social workers whose work is to help drug addicts. The interviews with the informants have been semi structured where as we had prepared some open questions but also as the interviews went on we thought of follow up questions to ask. The analysis was conducted with three theories: the turning point, natural recovery and social bond. The results show that there are different ways to reach a turning point when you decide to quit the habit and then there are various factors that facilitate a person of getting out of an addiction that also prevent relapse. Furthermore, the results show that their own perspective on what mattered the most during their way out of an addiction was the support of people who had gone through the same process of changing their lifestyle. They found that fellowship is essential to recovery and relapse prevention.
