The purpose of this study is to investigate what experiences people who had an alcohol and / or drug abuse while their children were young, have of children social services. Especially their experiences in contact with social services to take advantage of the support measures they provide. This is an empirical study based on interviews with three women and two men who had an alcohol and / or drug abuse when their children were underage, but today is clean and sober. The theoretical basis is ethical egoism, ethical and moral particularism and strategic trust. The results show that the interviewees felt that the abuse affected their parental role negatively. They had an ambivalent feeling when they wanted to be with their children, while they could not stop abusing. The parents felt a distrust of social service work, and the fear that the children would be taken away from them. Despite fears there was a desire for outside help. Authorities and ambient absent reactions to parental abuse is raised as a reason for not asking for help. This is because the parents are not forced to realize that they needed help. Their drug addiction, fear of losing their children led to cooperation difficulties and parents' inability to meet their responsibilities are all factors that prevented contact with social services.

The purpose of this study is to investigate experiences among people who have suffered from  alcohol and/or drug abuse while their children were still young. The essay mainly focuses on experiences evolving contact with the social services when taking part of the support measures provided. This is an empirical study based on interviews with three women and two men who all suffered from alcohol and/or drug abuse while their children were still underaged - people whom today claim to be sober. The theoretical basis is ethical egoism, ethical and moral particularism and strategic trust. The results show that the interviewees felt that the addiction affected their parenting in a negative way. They experienced an ambivalent feeling where they wanted to be with their children, but at the same time lacked the ability to end their substance abuse. The parents felt a distrust toward the social services, and there was a constant fear that the children would be taken away from them. Despite this, they also experienced a desire for outside help. Authorities and the absence of ambient reactions to parental abuse is raised as a reason for not asking for help. This is because the parents were not forced to realize that they needed help. Their drug addiction and the fear of losing their children led to cooperation difficulties and the parents' inability to meet their responsibilities was one of many factors that prevented contact with social services.
