Abstract
I have done a qualitative literature study, in which the data consisted of descriptions of drug abuse in ten social inquiry text documents (that also are applications for institutional care) concerning teenagers.

- How is the parameter gender related to the descriptions of drug abuse in the social inquiry text documents?

- How are other possible gender-stereotyped descriptions of the teenager related to the descriptions of drug abuse?

In the analysis of the descriptions, which where the foundation of the study, I found patterns in describing drug abuse depending on gender. I put those in relation to theories of stereotyped-gender contract and gender system and found out that there are genderstereotyped descriptions of teenagers drug abuse in the investigated empirical information.
