“In Her Own Words”: Understanding women’s experiences with drugs

A study is currently being conducted on women's experiences with drugs.

The overarching aim of the study is to understand how women buy, use, give, and sell drugs, as well as understand the meanings given by the participants to these experiences.

Most of the literature on the topic has focused on men’s involvement with drugs, so this study aims to focus on women’s own retellings of their involvement with drugs.

This study has been reviewed by Lund’s Ethical Board (Dnr 2018/440).
