The intent of The Swedish social law from 1970 was to contrive an integrated and generalised form of social work. Despite this, specialisation has become the most common form of organising social work. The aim of this study is to examine the consequences that specialisation has on an organisation, the social work managers and on the clients with drug abuse problems. In my study I have interviewed six social workers that all work within specialised organisations. I have used quantitative methods in my analysis. An analysis of my data has been made using three different themes; Specialisation, conflict and client. I have adopted Andrew Abbott’s theory of professionalisation to analyse my data, where I have chosen to look at every function as a profession in itself. The study shows that the social work managers appear to believe that specialised social work gives them unique knowledge and competence within their area of expertise. However, social works managers have observed that specialisation can have a negative effect upon the client. One of these may be that the client comes into contact with many different administrators. Yet, the social work managers nonetheless consider that their specific knowledge and competence within the area in which they work is more important and of more help to the client.
