A Discursive Analysis of Addicted Users’ Accounts of Opiate Addiction

A Discursive Analysis of Addicted Users’ Accounts of Opiate Addiction

Qualitative research exploring how addicts speak about heroin addiction and how their modes of representing their use can be implicated in trapping them in further use or allowing recovery. The study holds enormous credibility in that many recovering users often highlight how they recognise themselves in the work. Those without experience will certainly come away understanding a great deal more about heroin addiction (and other destructive patterns of behaviour) than they expected find. If I were you I would skip straight to the analysis section.
