The disposition was a qualitative study of literature. The method for analysis was examination of written sources, and the themes were childhood, motherhood and sexuality. The theoretical reference was research of drug abuse, feministic research and theory. The perspective was social constructive. The main results were that the drug-addicted woman was constructed as a person who often was maltreated and exposed to sexual abuse both as a girl and as a woman. She often was in a bad psychical health and had a thin network. The woman often had a feeling of not being seen. (Less)
