The Swedish drug policy has long been characterized by a strong ideological stance where zero tolerance has been central. Now this view has begun to be challenged by another view of how substance abuse treatment should be designed. Our purpose is to examine how social workers are affected by being in a field where the public opinions are divided in how their work shall be performed. This with a background in social work itself is a contentious area as well as drug and substance abuse services. We have in this study used a qualitative research method in which we conducted six semi-structured interviews with social workers in the Swedish drug treatment. These social workers represent two different organizations in which one of them can be said to represent the new type of thinking how substance abuse treatment should be designed that started to appear in Sweden. The results we found were that social workers shared many values regarding the social work responsibilities and structure no matter what organization they represented.
Key words: Social work, substance abuse treatment, professional (Less)
