Do I need help? : Aspects that affects initiative of help-seeking for patients with alcohol abuse or misuse (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Alcohol is the most widely used intoxicant in the western world. The negative effects of alcohol on the individual, group and societal level results in a wide array of problems which effect both the person using the substance and his/her relatives. Aim: The aim was to illuminate which aspects influence help-seeking for individuals with alcohol misuse. Method: The method was a literature review. Eleven articles were the base for the analysis. Both qualitative and quantitative articles were included. Results: Three themes and six sub-themes were identified. The themes were: Personal aspects, Social aspects and Structural aspects. The identified sub-themes were: "To have or to lack insight", "To feel guilt", "To believe that the problem can be solved on one´s own", "To feel stigma", "To feel a lack of trust in health care" and "To lack information and accessibility". Personal aspects were the most commonly described as both barriers and incentives for help-seeking. Another identified aspect of importance for help-seeking for individuals with alcohol misuse was the individual's perception of healthcare. A negative opinion of the available healthcare had a negative impact of help seeking while the opposite had a positive impact. Conclusion: The results showed that help-seeking behaviours is a complicated and multifaceted issue involving many different aspects which interacts with each other. It is important that nurses in every field of healthcare have knowledge of these aspects in order to have the tools and knowledge to motivate and support these patients to get the care they need.
