Abstract
The aim of this study was to examine different factors that influenced former drug addicts to quit abusing drugs and make a role change. We chose a qualitative method and our study was based on semi-structured interviews with seven individuals about their turning point in their life as an active drug abuser.

Our study show that the process of role-exiting looked different for each participant, but all of them had experienced several negative consequences of their drug abuse which led them to take a conscious or unconscious decision to quit abusing drugs. We analyzed the interviews by focusing on "the turning point"... (More)
