In the implementation of the study, we have used a qualitative approach in the form of six (06) semi-structured interviews with child-welfare officers who work with investigation of children and young people’s situations. Our results showed that the majority of the child-welfare officers saw differences depending on which environment the child grows up in, despite the fact that the previous research showed that children who grow up in gambling addiction and substance abuse are affected in a similar way. The results showed that they saw differences on the consequences for the child, but they could see no difference in support and help for the child. (Less)
