The practical part was conducted following the qualitative research strategy, which included the use of semistructured interviews. The sample for the semistructured interviews consists of clients of the Karlov therapeutic community.

Furthermore, it was found that clients began to experience drugs at a very young age and the problems associated with this addiction did not come until many years later, when the drug changed the original scale of life values for all respondents and completely disrupted personal relationships. This bachelor thesis provides insight into the issues associated with addictive substances and their subsequent treatment performed in the Karlov therapeutic community. The results of the research conducted in this bachelor thesis could be used by the Karlov therapeutic community as a basis for an improvement of their current practices.

Mádlová, Adéla ; Gabrhelíková, Pavlína (advisor) ; Svoboda, Martin (referee)
Background: Penitentiary care for clients with addictology issues is still an insufficiently discussed topic. Especially if we emphasize that a significant number of clients, ie users of addictive substances (especially illegal ones) have experience in serving a custodial sentence. The fact that more attention needs to be paid to the care of users of illegal addictive substances in prisons was confirmed by the Prison Service of the Czech Republic by creating a position for addictologists in prisons in 2018, following a successful pilot project. Targets: The core of the final work are case studies with the aim of examining the issue of matching needs in individual addictology services offered by Bělušice Prison. Given the prison's limited capacity to provide addictology services, also answer the question of whether the programs and interventions provided are sufficient or whether the possibility of setting up or amending one of the intervention programs could not be considered in the future. Research group: The research method of the case study was used for the clinical part of the final diploma thesis. The method of long-term observation and the study of available documentation were used to obtain information. Reduction and organization of information was used for data analysis, ie content analyzes...
