I interviewed a psychiatrist, a social worker, the chairman of a treatment center as well as the chairman of the Svenska Brukarföreningen. Finally I spoke to Socialstyrelsen in order to get their view on the questions above. In a compiled analysis I found a rather strong support of substitute treatment, often linked to the argument of harm reduction. A wish for decreased suffering and decreased death rates is deeply rooted no matter what the actual standpoint may be, both in the debate taking place in the media and among the interviewees. (Less)
