What drugs users say and do not say, using experiences and the projective technique

Francisca Lucélia Ribeiro de Farias Antonia Regina Ferreira Furegato About the authors

This study aimed to get to know some visible and hidden meanings in drugs users' experience. The interviews were associated with the Projective Technique (free and thematic drawing), based on which we analyzed the subjective content and what was expressed by the users. The results demonstrated the existence of family deterioration, stigma and prejudice.
