REŽNÁ, Lucie
This bachelor thesis focuses on the issues of a life purpose and a value orientation. The research is based on patients, who are being treated for a drug addiction at the Červený Dvůr Psychiatric hospital. The first part of the thesis focuses on giving definition to the terms "life purpose" and "value orientation", primarily in the context of Victor Emanuel Frankl´s logotherapy and existential analysis. Further ahead, the definition of a drug addiction and the theory of addiction´s origin is discussed as well. The exploration part of the thesis presents the results of research, which was carried out at the Červený Dvůr Psychiatric hospital since November 2016 to March 2017. 33 (25 men, 8 women) respondents, who are being treated for drug addiction, participated in the research. The Logo-test, Existential scale and Value and purpose evaluating and ordering methods were used for collecting the data. The results show, that patients have issues mainly in the area of life values fulfilling. Further the research points out, that staying in the institution has a positive impact on decreasing an existential frustration and positively influencing the perception of meaningfulness of life. The research proved that experiencing meaningfulness and occurrence of existential frustration differs at patients that are being treated for the first time and at patients who are being treated repeatedly.
