Abstract
The description of the drug user and drug abuse varies and has changed over time. The aim of this study is to put a social constructionist approach to examine the social construction of drug abuse and drug users within selected parts of a specific Swedish public inquiry (SOU 2011:35). I have analyzed my material by dividing it into categories using a qualitative method for analyzing the content of the text. My conclusion is that drug addiction is defined as an individual medical problem best treated by medical care. Resolving the situation of drug users is not primarily about stopping drug use, but through medical interventions take the control over it.
