ADDICTIONS IN THE PERIOD OF THE ADOLESCENCE AND THEIR INFLUENCE ON THE FAMILY LIFE. THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE YOUNG ADULT
Keywords:drug use, adolescent, addiction, family, relationships
AbstractNowadays we are facing a very difficult to understand paradox regarding the adolescent drug use. Although the number of information campaigns and prevention of the consump¬tion are constantly increasing, the information sources on this topic are growing and more complex, the parents are more informed upon the devastating effects of the drugs and upon the way in which they should discuss with their children, the number of people with addic¬tions is growing, the start-up age is decreasing and the types of consumed drugs are more and more diversified. For the drug use phenomena there are several medical, social and psychological theo-ries. But the drug consume during adolescence has longer effects upon the life of the former user ? Can the members of the family or the family situation favor the adolescent drug use ? The drug consume had left repercussions upon their formation as adults, upon their rela¬tionships and their present life ? We tried to find out answers to these questions from for¬mer drug users (consumers of cannabis, cocaine, heroin, tobacco) through a qualitative research based on the technique of the individual interview.
