"the Debaters: the Face of health care guarantee for families of addicts"

"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."

"the DEBATE. A family with one or two abusive parents is a dangerous place for a child. They risk humiliation, threats of violence, loneliness, fear, neglect, and hunger. Often get the child to take responsibility for their parents ' health and for the management of the home."

"Linnea is one of those kids. She is 14 years old and her mother is suffering since many years of an alcohol addiction. Outwardly you will not notice on Linnea how it is at home and she manages the school well. She is doing everything she can to help her mother and take early vuxenansvar in the family. "

"But Linnea can't be bothered as to how long that time, as a young adult, there is a great risk that she is exhausted and has a hard time to cope with work or studies, she isolates herself socially and avoid close relationships."

"Children of addicts have a significantly higher risk than others to suffer mental ill health as adults and to develop for themselves an abuse. For many, that means anhörigskapet a long suffering, and the increase in mental ill health also represents a significant economic cost."

"I would not be writing this if I didn't know that we could do something. Ersta diakoni operates since 1986, the turning point, a professional reception for children, young people, parents and other adults who live in or have grown up in a family or relationship with substance abuse. "

"We offer educational programs in the group for various ages, family discussions, individual psychotherapy, summer camps, and counselling and crisis support via telephone and through visits to the turning point. Until trettonhelgen we have a collection especially for the turning point."

"An evaluation of the Ersta Vändpunktens tonårsprogram shows that 50 percent of participants report that they improved their performance in school, 77% that their self-image has become better or much better and 65% to their relationship to other members of the family become better or much better."

"the Stakes will strengthen children's protective factors. Among them are increased self confidence, better relationships, increased ability to manage emotions, and increased confidence in their ability to be able to change their situation."

"We want to help more people. We want to extend our prevention work for families with substance abuse. With a better prevention from more players and more of the long-term thinking in the political decision-making, a part of the future problems can be avoided."

"Therefore, we propose to:"

"Actually, is not the question of whether we can afford prevention. The question is how we can believe the us can afford to refrain from them."
