"Aftonbladet's review of the rattfylleristerna that kills shows that over half of them have substance abuse problems."
"to stop them the required care, not prison."
"It mean Jeårg Lindqvist, a former addict who now works at the clinic."
"– you're Getting away with the abuse so, you get rid of crime, " he says."
"364 sek. It was what Jeårg lindqvist's last rånbyte was worth. It was a lighter, a tablettask and a game receipt that he stole when he robbed a betting shop in the affected state. He had abused for over 20 years. In the last ten years, he had taken heroin and other opiates and he had behind him 20 sentences. It was about several drug-related crimes: theft, drugs, drunk driving and illegal driving."
"– People are talking about that you have to hit the bottom, but in such a situation, there is no bottom. I have old acquaintances who sits on the town and begging for money and not have anywhere to stay, but they still think that there has been sufficient consequences to stop, " says Jeårg Lindqvist."
"Despite the fact that Jeårg Lindqvist several times offered treatment instead of prison he declined. He was serving rather a shorter time in prison than having to take hold of the substance use problem."
" I wanted to well not be sober simply. And then it is quite simple, you can lie and read a book and stare at the tv in a month and then you come out and can continue where you left off. It is well, therefore, people choose to rather sit in prison."
"Acquaintance drove to the mother with the stroller"
"Among other things, was sentenced Jeårg several times for drunk driving. He has not injured or killed someone in traffic, but he knows others who have done it. And he has also lost a close friend like that."
"– I know of one that ran on a mother with a baby stroller. The mother died and the child survived. I guess he's both drunk and knarkat on the guilt he had after it, " he says and adds:" the
" And my best friend died on the way. He and another guy were out driving and they had eaten the benzo and swung out right in front of a truck. My best friend died, but he who was driving, survived. And there have also been a trauma for him throughout his life."
"Half have substance abuse problems."
"Aftonbladet has reviewed the 68 judgments from 2012 to today, where a person guilty of involuntary manslaughter and driving under the influence at the same time. Over half of the people have, according to the judgments and frivårdsyttranden substance abuse problem. "
"Although it has only four of them with a pronounced abuse sentenced to probation with special treatment plan, so-called contract care: that is that it is convicted of an offence are given the opportunity to undergo treatment instead of sitting in prison."
"Lars Håkan Nilsson, medical advisor in the Correctional service, the think more people should be sentenced to contract treatment."
"– But at the same time is behandlingshemsvistelse very avhängt which type of residential care it is all about. Many do not have the security that fits our inmates. It is often quite open forms of care where you can dodge anyway, " says Lars Håkan Nilsson."
"– Then we can also provide excellent health care at the institutions with our various programs, but the problem is what happens when they become ex-offenders."
"No equivalent dependency care”"
"Lars Håkan Nilsson believes that a major problem is that no one takes responsibility for their care when they were released. He is taking therapy as an example, then heroin - and opioidberoende treated with methadone or subutex."
"– There is no obligation for the council to receive persons after they have been freed. If the county council made it, it would make very much for us. Then we would be able to start a treatment in very stable forms, while they are inmates and then refer them out to a continued aftercare. The problem is also that there is an equivalent dependency care in the country."
"According to a study made by researchers at Karolinska institutet can be repeated crime of, among other things, drug users be prevented by treatment with psychotropic drugs. According to the study, which studied 22 000 released prisoners, reducing recidivism in violent crime, with 52 percent of medication abuse."
"– It is a critical period just after released out of prison, and where there may occur a gap. It is not so that one automatically when one is released will get access to the contact with psychiatric or other assistance, so there may be a risk that you lose people on the way. It is important to ensure that they receive adequate help in order not to relapse into crime, " says Henrik Larsson, professor at Karolinska institutet and one of the authors of the study."
"Already in high school began Jeårg Lindqvist with alcohol and hashish. And the abuse only worsened. He believes that it was an interplay of several different factors that made that he ended up in abuse."
"– It was pretty common in my social circle, I went on the stökigaste school in my hometown and I thought at first it was incredibly exciting. So in a way it was my own driving force, in combination with socio-economic factors. Ago, I also had a dad who abused, so it was probably something genetic. "
"Found the emotions – without the drugs."
"Now Jeårg Lindqvist has been drug-free for nearly ten years. It was at the detention centre in Härnösand as a prison officers managed to get him on other thoughts. An eleven months long treatment was the beginning of the end of the missbrukslivet."
" It has been really hard but also nice because I have been forced to go through all the emotional without having to dampen it with drugs. I had been off for so long so I had basically just a feeling, and it was that I was angry. During all this the anger low really sadness, but I had no idea about then."
"today has Jeårg trained social worker and works at a treatment center for addicts. He says that he tries not to think about what happened if he did not receive treatment, but believe that he would otherwise have been dead today."
" I am of the firm opinion that anyone who has a misuse problems need a treatment. A lot of my crime was drug-related: it was to get hold of drugs, or to get money for drugs, or because I was influenced that I committed crimes. I had not been the addict I had not committed any crimes, " says Jeårg Lindqvist."
