Abstract [no]

Kvinners opplevelse av hva deres rusproblem er, påvirker hva de søker hjelp for og hvordan de opplever den hjelpen de får. Rusbruken påvirker deres egenskaper (vilje, evner, deres normalitet og deres fasade), deres tilhørighet (normal, vanlig kvinne, likevel unormal og anderledes, en del av en familie og et sosialt nettverk, men likevel ensomme og isolerte) og deres tilstand (som syke og nærmest døende, men likevel friske og levende). De beveger seg langs disse aksene. Hvor de befinner seg er avhengig av situasjoner de er i og følelser de har, eller får som et resultat av situasjonene. Kvinnenes opplevelse av hva rusbruken er for dem, påvirker hvordan de opplever at ansatte møter dem. De opplever å bli inkludert eller ekskludert, å bli forstått eller misforstått, å eie sitt problem eller bli fremmedgjort for det. De opplever å bli møtt som likeverdige personer eller å bli degradert som menneske og de opplever å få tro på at det nytter, at de får håp om en framtid eller opplever mistro og håpløshet. Ansatte konfronterte, var i dialog over tid og avgrenset problemet i sine møter med kvinnene. Ble kvinnene ble møtt på sammensattheten i deres problemforståelse og verdsatt som hele personer, var konfrontasjon og dialog over tid gode strategier. Erkjennelse av rusproblemene kommer fram over tid og er ikke en bevisst og avgrenset tanke hos kvinnene når de oppsøker hjelp. Fokus på rusbruk må derfor holdes oppe over tid

Abstract [en]

How women experience their drug dependency influence why they seek help and how they experience the help they are receiving. Use of drugs affects their human qualities (will or abilities, normality and appearance), it influence their experience of belonging (being normal, ordinary, abnormal and different, as part of a normal family with an ordinary social network but yet isolated and lonesome) and their condition (sickness and nearly dying, well-being and healthy). They move along these axis. Where they are depend on the situations they are in and the feelings they have or get in the situation. This influence on how they experience communication with helpers. They experience inclusion and exclusion, understanding and misunderstanding. They experience ownership of their problems and becoming aliensto them. They are either treated as equals or degrated as human beings. They experience hope and trust or mistrust and hopelessness. The professionals used confrontation, dialogue over time or delimitation of the problem.Dialogue and confrontation was useful strategies if the the professionels showed understanding for the compexity of the womens problems. Their experiences in the meetings influenced whether they were working along with their drug/alcohol problems or whether they continued to use drugs and alcohol. Their recognition of their problems with drugs/alcohol reveals over time. It is not conscious and concrete in their minds. Focus on drugs/alcohol must therefore be persistant over time
