Which significance do their social networks have in their lives and in the changingprocess? 4. How do the interviewpersons look upon the future?

In my essay I have written about other peoples importance when a heroinaddict is trying to leave the "drugworld" and enter the "conventional world". This means that I havn't focused so much on the methadone itself, but more on the "complements" needed to make the new life meaningful and worth maintaining. (Less)
