English abstract
The aim of the study was to examine how background factors, such as abuse earlier in life, affect depression and suicidal behavior, amongst persons who abuse alcohol or illicit drugs. The study was performed at the Social Service Center, Södermalm, department for adults. The data used in the study is based on Addiction Severity Index interviews (ASI) and includes 560 observations. The statistic methods used to analyse the data is chi² test and the result is presented in cross tables and charts. The main findings were that experiences of psychological, physical, or sexual abuse, earlier in life increase the risk for major depression and suicidal behavior later in life. The experience of major depression, amongst persons who had been abused psychologically, physically or sexually, earlier in life also increased the risk for suicide thoughts and suicide attempts. The findings also indicated that those with parents who`s had problems with their psychological health were a risk group for suicide thoughts. As for suicide attempt there was no correlation between this and the parent`s problems with alcohol/drugs or psychological health. Gender did not seem to be a significant factor for depression or suicidal behavior with in the group that has been abused. With in the whole studied group, on the other hand, women were more commonly depressed, had suicide thoughts and more often made suicide attempts, than men. Women in the group also had more experiences of psychological, physical, or sexual abuse, earlier in life.
