Abstract

REIS, Lúcia Margarete dos; SALES, Catarina Aparecida  and  OLIVEIRA, Magda Lúcia Félix de. Narrative of a drug user's daughter: impact on family daily routine. Esc. Anna Nery [online]. 2017, vol.21, n.3, e20170080.  Epub Aug 17, 2017. ISSN 1414-8145.  https://doi.org/10.1590/2177-9465-ean-2017-0080.

Objective:

To understand the repercussions of coexisting with the drug use in a family based on the daughter's narrative of a woman who is a multiple drugs user.

Method:

A case study with a family accessed in 2014, through the records of a Poison Control Center in the North of Paraná. It was used a semi-structured interview and field journal, and resources of thematic oral history to apprehend the story, from the question "How is/was for you and your family to live with a mother who is a drug user?”

Results:

The daughter's memories emphasized repercussions in the family context: long-term of living with drug abuse; absence or transience of the motherly figure, with rupture processes for homeless situation; cycle of parental disruption/forgiveness and continued presence and fatherly support.

Final considerations:

The narrative indicated a family that could be added to the process of rehabilitation and social reintegration of the female drug user.
