This study aimed to examine the relationships among the demographic variables of adult level I or level II drug addicts, namely: self-stigma, social support and tendency to relapse. This study employed a qualitative method. Of 142 samples from Kaohsiung Drug Abuse Treatment Center, Sindian Drug Abuse Treatment Center, Taichung Drug Abuse Treatment Center and Taoyuan Women’s Drug Abuse Treatment Center. The Substance Abuse Self-Stigma Scale, the Relapse Prediction Scale and Social Support were used as this study’s research tools.
Through regression analysis, the research results indicated two conclusions;
(1)Self-Stigma of the drug addicts predicted their tendency to relapse.
(2)Gender of the drug addicts predicted their tendency to relapse. Female drug addicts relapse more easily.
Through analysis of correlation, the research results related to tendency to relapse indicated two conclusions:
(1)Positive correlation was found between years of drug use on the part of the drug addicts and their tendency to relapse.
(2)Negative correlation was found between family support of the drug addicts and their tendency to relapse, which was induced by circumstances, as well as their acceptance of drugs.
Through analysis of correlation, the research results related to self-stigma indicated four conclusions:
(1)Negative correlation was found between self-stigma among the drug addicts and social support of the drug addicts.
(2)Positive correlation was found between self-stigma and age of drug addicts.
(3)Positive correlation was found between self-stigma and years of drug use by the drug addicts.
(4)Positive correlation was found between self-stigma and initial taking drugs.
The research results concerning the demographic variable of the drug addicts
indicated several conclusions: the age of the study participants was found to be the most widely distributed, with a wide range of initial drug use. Besides, most participants were unmarried, with full-time jobs. Most participants took amphetamines. Based on the findings, this study proposed four practical suggestions: (1)Strengthening the family support of drug addicts and educational services. (2)Helping drug addicts to overcome public stigma. (3)Strengthening juvenile drug abuse prevention through strengthening a three-tier prevention strategy. (4) For drug addicts with longer years of drug use and different gender of drug use more multiple treatment programs should be formulated.
