Drug addict victimization

The project aims to identify the indicators of prior and subsequent to drug victimization, and to understand the relational dynamics that contribute to the over-victimization of the drug addict.

Issues on victimization of drug addicts will be addressed, as something that has been repeatedly mentioned in the international literature as an imperative. For this purpose, a questionnaire was constructed to collect data regarding the experience of victimization situations, specifically designed for the drug addict population.

The instrument was submitted to a pre-testing process, and has been changed keeping in mind the analysis made, and is about to be published (cf. Nunes & Sani, in press).
