Drug addiction and it's place within social sience : A study about student's comprehension of drug addiction (English)
Abstract [en]

With the purpose of creating a material for teachers to use when educating about narcotics, this study has inquired students understanding of drug addiction as well as their comprehension of the education about addiction. The understanding has then been analysed through an individual perspective and a structural perspective. The apprehension of the given education has been analysed by prevention theory. The result displays a broad spectrum of understanding, varying from a clear individual perspective to an almost exclusive structural understanding. The informants are over all in an agreement that their received education have not had any effect in particular on their comprehension of drug addiction and they require more education in the subject. Their apprehension is supported by previous studies, which show that the education given today have non to little effect on youth attitudes towards drugs. Instead, the home is mentioned as a key factor. However, three success factors are also presented which, from the students’ apprehension, with one exception are not present in their received education which could be an explanation to the lack of effect. The fact that narcotics is not prioritized within the teaching of social studies could be explained by a strong subject tradition where political science and national economics receive most attention.
