The World Health Organization expects mental illnesses, including drug addiction, to be the main cause of disease in Western countries by 2020. Recommended measures in order to meet these health challenges are facilitating recovery, empowerment, local services and social inclusion. The purpose of this study has been to investigate which importance coping with daily activities has for drug addicts in a rehabilitation phase. The study is qualitative with a phenomenological starting point. Through individual interviews with four drug addicts, we wanted them to describe their everyday life activities. The subjects were living on a farm in Norway, had been through treatment, and were drugfree upon arrival at the farm. The interviews were analyzed with systematic text condensation. Findings showed that coping with everyday activities contribute to a) hardiness, b) fellowship, c) trust and d) normality. The study concludes that coping with everyday activities in a drug-free environment together with other drug addicts will strengthen drug-free identity and future hope.
