The religious commitment is considered to have a positive impact on the addicts path to sobriety, according to previous research and the interviewed social workers in this thesis. The thesis also conclude that the main reason for religiosity among addicts according to social workers is the sense of context and meaning offered by religious engagement. To be part of a social context with support from the surroundings and having a sense of meaningfulness and manageability, is described as being directly decisive for maintaining a sober living. However some social workers in this thesis consider religion and religious engagement as a possible substitute to addiction. (Less)
