Abstract [sv]

Our main aim is to understand the phenomena coersion by regarding how it is created and maintained durien coersive care of drug abusers in Sweden. In this article we follow processes through coercive care by stories from social workers and clients. 23 interviews were conducted with 13 social workers in the social services and 10 personen who have been under coercive care. The material derives from two parallel studies wher the social services work has been in focus. The interviewees' stories elucidate actions and interaction throughout the coercive care. hereby they describe a process where the drug user first is transformed from a subject to an object. When the care continues in to volontary treatment the objectification of the drug user seases and turns into a re-subjectification, where the disciplined can regain influence on his life, but this time as disciplined. We argue that coersion is productive since it produces chhanged identitites.
