Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Intag av en skadlig mängd alkohol leder till att 3.3 miljoner människor världen över mister sitt liv varje år. Var tionde svensk uppskattas idag ha ett skadligt bruk av alkohol. För att mäta den enskilde personens bruk av alkohol används diagnossystem som DSM-5 och ICD-10. Partners tillhör de allra närmaste anhöriga som löper stor risk att påverkas av sin livskamrats alkoholberoende.

Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva hur en partner upplever och påverkas i sitt liv tillsammans med en alkoholberoende partner.

Metod: En litteraturbaserad studie genomfördes genom litteratursystematiska sökningar, och 11 artiklar analyserades.

Resultat: Resultatet består av sex teman och två subteman. Ett tema är Hälsopåverkan med subtema Psykisk och fysisk påverkan, och känslolivet. Övriga teman är: Social påverkan, påverkan i relationer, påverkan i vardagen, Strategier, och stöd. Resultat av studien visar att partners till alkoholberoende oftast skadas själva, vilket skapar lidande hos partnern. Ett alkoholberoende påverkar och skadar inte bara den beroende själv, utan även personer runt om.
