The purpose of this essay is to contribute to an extensive understanding of former criminals and addicts. These people are facing several difficulties and possibilities during childhood, adolescence, the active period, the turning-point and life after the turning-point and we have examined what they might consist of.
In this survey we have applied a qualitative method and collected our basis from interviews with former criminals and addicts. Criminality and addiction is a complex problem. There are many different factors which contribute to develop this. The most differential factors are; insecure childhood, low self-esteem and wrong kind of friends. We have discovered that it is a long process filled with difficulties which leads to weary of the lifestyle and ultimately to a turning-point (maturing out). Further we found the importance of a non criminal network connected to the turning-point and the life after that.
