The purpose of this study has been to examine and analyze the exercise of authority social workers in the social services for substance abusers and financial assistance considers measures of support and control / coercion against the client, and how they, in their own balance these measures in client work. The study is based on qualitative semi-structured interviews with four social workers, two from financial assistance and two from substance abuser in a small town and a middle town in south of Sweden. The theoretical approach being used is: accounts, perspective of power and repressive power and extreme case formulations. The study´s result shows that social workers in the social services for substance abusers only work with control when it´s not a question about voluntary treatment. They also agreed about that coercive actions means an LVM situation. Social workers working with financial assistance are aware that their work includes control but do not see that there are any coercive actions in their work with the clients. (Less)
