The purpose of the article is to highlight school problems of adolescents with alcohol and drug problems in Sweden. Bronfenbrenners social-ecological model has been applied in a quantitative content analysis of 415 interviews in connection with the adolescent’s admission of an outpatient contact. The results show that over a third of the adolescents statements are linked to individual characteristics or abilities, while problems related to the school are 13 percent, interaction with peers to 13 percent, and with the connection to the family of 3 percent. About a third of the statements involve both individual factors and the school, and the interaction between these. An important conclusion is that most of these adolescents are still enrolled in school and that several of the school problems mentioned in the study are changeable and thus possible to remedy through both an educational and social support that promotes their connection to the school.
